Lesson 6 - Final Details
You have heard art imitates life. I have found this to be truly so.
I personally went through a very profound transition to land on solid ground where I found another path leading me onwards. I have discovered this IS life….this is growth.
This has also been expressed in my art. Now that I look back at my art over the last 3-4 years, it is very clear where I was in each of my transitional stages. I feel that I have broken free of my binds and cocoon and now am soaring on a continuous flight of discovery! Stay tuned for much new work coming from me! Transcending.
