Something brief for tonight. I am struck with the responsibility of the artist to create in the spirit of brotherhood with humanity--uniting oneself to mankind's longing for wholeness, order, interior peace, love. It isn't enough to 'express oneself' for it's own sake. It goes without saying that the artist is expressing himself. The question is, "From where did the inspiration come and where is it leading?" The singularity of expression comes as a result of time, hard work, maturity and consistent exploration of one's personal vision.
