Among the many things for which to be grateful, to the ultimate Creator, is the ability to create the visible. Those of us who carry on the traditions of those visual masters before us, are indeed fortunate in this century and in this country. We have electricity, running water, manufactured goods for the artist to save time and the freedom to get down to work. We have this new world of clients and loyal admirers, and wonderful teachers among us at the stroke of a keypad. How truly marvelous!
In this brave new world of technology, in this world with all its flaws, are the creators. That is us, folks. We, who breathe life into ideas, make extraordinary the mundane, give form to rituals and preserve history, among so many other things.
Quite a gift to be thankful for today and each day. Count your blessings, not your worries.
Best to all of you who visit and encourage me.
Happy Thanksgiving.
