Can there be such a thing as a permanent work in progress? My answer to this I think is simple. I consider myself as a permanent work in progress-- I think everyone is. There's no end in sight for the improvement for all of us no matter your age. This is why I strive to better myself as an artist and as a person. Having faced depression that lasted for well over a decade, I never thought to pursue becoming an artist because I thought myself mediocre. It took so long for me to realize that art isn't something that is fixed, set in stone. It can grow with you.
