Artistic ability

I found this here:

Artisans Cup in Portland in October 2013

"Artistic ability is not something that improves without making the effort to improve. Without having an inquisitive spirit, humility, effort and the courage to improve, artistic ability will not shine through.
Thank you, Mr. Kimura"

How true! Well, many will think that they have done bonsai for ten, twenty or even thirty years and therefore they MUST be good.
Have you ever wondered how many mediocre, poor or even very poor car drivers have practiced driving for ten, twenty, thirty, forty, sixty or more years. And they have not improved.
Have you ever wondered why it is that young men at the age of twenty are race car drivers having had a driver's license only for two years?
