    I love the picture of the boy and the man. Same essence in different sizes. Great, great piece. I’m going on create.

    Your spread is like a ‘memory’ with all kinds of ‘symbols’ and messages… I don’t know if it is, but it seems that to me – wonderful!

    I so totally feel the same! Hard to stop and pay attention to everything else in life, it all turns into art somehow. You are a great wordsmith as well!

    This is an excellent manifesto Brian! I am with you on obeying my need to create =-)
    I have to agree with St. John Studios that EVERYTHING in Life becomes Art as you begin to cultivate an art-FULL eye, but then again the world is truly full of Beauty if you take the time to observe it…

    Looking forward to seeing you at Orly’s!

    Great Brian! Is that you on the farm in Montana? When you see the collaboration piece, you will see that we are thinking along the same lines….3/4 of the way done and then off to you.
