Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now. – Goethe

This discipline of faith still serves me today.  I have big dreams and ambitious goals.  I want to die a life well lived.  I no longer want a commonly defined, traditional,  "good" life. I want to pursue my potential, my particular inclinations, my dreams.  However common or uncommon they are. I had a kernel of faith and it gave me power and magic. This faith inspired action and I began to pursue the bold notion of living a good and prosperous life as a painter.  I knew that there had to be a way. There couldn’t just be one permission-based scarcity model that is the traditional art market.  And I did have talent. My work had received critical approval.  There had to be a way. Art is a business.  That itself is a creation.  I decided to create what worked for me and what added value to my collectors.  With a consideration to my collectors I knew would have a competitive edge and a more rewarding and satisfying exchange with them. So I began, years ago now.  I sold my work in cafes, sponsored events, through referrals, at art receptions that I hosted, and from my wall when I was selling my condo.  It’s the beginning that is bold, brave.  And that is the power, that is magic.
