About last year

Last year was a crazy, exciting and exhilarating year for me, I went to the Volta Art Fair in March and everything I thought I knew as an artist changed over night. All of a sudden everything I always wanted happened, that magical sun light found me waiting for my moment. I have always honored my practice, did what was necessary and let the works move me in the direction it need to go. I've dealt with disappointments, failures, missed opportunities and fear of change but this isn't anything unusual, most artist go through these things everyday.
I'm nothing special, I think this can happen to any artist who works hard and is passionate about their work and accepts that its not about them but the work.
I told myself the other day when I felt exhausted from travel that the other side of success is poverty and I've done that, so get up and go work in the studio because while nothing last forever and it's up to me to stay focus, keep my feet planted and to continue to push the boundaries of my work.
There are some amazing artists who have given me great advice... all I have to do is to put into practice what they tell me to do.

Yesterday, New York magazine 's current issue arrived with several of my works featured in it, I could have never dreamt this so I try and present in the moment and thank god for his many blessings

Current song...David Cook's Time of my life!
