This speaks deeply to how I feel about my art. We artists have the ability to create and send messages to inspire change and effect the world for the better. We are able to do that because we allow ourselves to feel our emotions and to think about anything and everything; and we pause there, in this often uncomfortable state, in order to bring about what our spirit is trying to say. Let’s stay the course, my friends. Be true to your art. Be true to your message. Be true to your spirit.
