What does it take to make a masterpiece?

Detail. A lot of detail.

If we are going to create a piece of art on the computer we have the luxury of the zoom function. A function which allows us to magnify our work as close as we would like, and then work on the tiniest of details, then zoom back out and see how it looks.

We can use the zoom function in our own lives. We can zoom in as close as we need to, and erase the problems, blend the colours, round and shade the edges, and then step back and enjoy.

One of the issues is that, it’s a terrifying experience. We often don’t like to dive into our own hearts to find out what really lurks beneath.

The other issue is, it’s the only way to make a masterpiece.
