Paths

Updated: Nov 10, 2018

8 January 2014 The holidays have past and a new year is before us. It was a busy year: five shows, a few sales, and more pieces created. This is a good time to look back, as well as looking forward.

 

This was one of the first few pieces that I created with my friend Dave. In fact, pieces for this Foundling came from Dave's father, Morris. In his honor this piece was named after him, "Memories of Morris" or "MOM". I am grateful for how helpful and encouraging he has been in my artist pursuits as I am grateful for all who have encouraged me. This is not an easy path.

 

I suppose all paths have their difficulties and I loath to single out artistic pursuits as being more difficult than any other path. But the path of the artist is particularly poorly lit and the path is not merely about doing your best but also about finding your way. Like walking through a forest at night, you only know that you have succeeded when you have come out on the other end.
