Don’t only practice your art. But force your way into its secrets. For it, and knowledge can raise men to the divine. -Beethoven

Don’t only practice your art. But force your way into its secrets. For it, and knowledge can raise men to the divine. -Beethoven

My father passed away three weeks ago. The shock of it is over. The work of finding my way back to my art has been elusive. Sometimes, though, it’s just a matter of opening an old notebook and combining some old treasure with a recent photograph like this one. In other words, you just have to keep going. Keep trusting. Keep creating. No matter how dodgy the process might feel.
