The creation of art is hard, but I’m one hundred percent sure I can accomplish it from time to time.
- As a child I started singing. (because that’s what you did in my family.)
- At 16, I started writing original songs. (because if you write your own music, it’s harder for people to tell when you make mistakes.)
- At 17 years, with the help of a local art teacher I created my first (and only) charcoal drawing and was shocked to discover that it looked like a vase of flowers.
- In my twenties, I created a new vision of a pet store from an old tired dreary one and a recording studio from a deserted pool hall.
- In my thirties, I created software, a couple of music degrees, part of a book, part of a requiem and a family.
- In my forties, I created a chicken coup, pig pens and piles of firewood from 80 acres of oak forest and software that helped run Pepsi.
- In my fifties, I created the Impact Family. (Now that’s lasting art!)
- And in my sixties, I’m creating feature films and a legacy of hope.
My results vary.
Because art IS the creation of something from nothing.
I’m convinced that I’ll be putting in the work and creating art until I die, but it’s up to you to keep it alive if it’s going to impact anyone beyond my lifetime.
All the best,
