"If your work is not surprising you, then there is more to do. The work should be many steps ahead of you."
– Enrique Martinez Celaya from the book On Art And Mindfulness
The above statement is perfect in the place I am today. This photo is only a cropped detail of a piece I have revisited and am finishing titled "Juliet". It features words by Shakespeare from his play Romeo and Juliet.
Days like these, my art feels surprising and a bit uncomfortable. There is a feeling in my heart that I am in uncharted territory in both the way the art is developing and in how I am executing it. But the thrill is definitely present that I am on to something wonderful!
