What Awaits

graphite bull rider
Explaining my art is something that I don't often do. I believe what a viewer gets from a piece is far more important than my intention or message. What I am trying to say with a work is only a motivation to create. The importance of it ends when I complete it. At that point it has a life of its own and hopefully brings something new to each person who sees it.

However, I would like to take a quick moment to explain a drawing I did a few years ago. "What Awaits" was my way of coming to grips with the idea that the fear of something is usually greater than the thing that is feared. This is a running theme in my life. Often what holds me back is something that I have created in my mind and not something that actually exists. I tend to explore this theme time and again in my art. I mention this because once again it popped up in my life and instantly I was reminded of the time I spent drawing "What Awaits". This time I believe I am aware that the fear is all in my head. If lose sight of this maybe one of you will remind me of what I said.

A quick thank you to the lovely ladies at the airport. I think you may be checking out my site. It was a brief encounter but one I will always remember.

I'm currently taking a brief vacation and will be back to the studio next week. Until that time...peace to you all.
