“There is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.” — Martha Graham



What is it about a person that can look at a sandy beach










and
create a sculpture from the sand.








Start with a blank canvas

and take the vision of their mind's eye & paint it in a picture.













The creative genius in a person has always captivated me. I especially admire the artists that are daring enough to make a living at it. It has to be a be a God-given gift to look at a blank canvas, a slab of marble, or an cast-off piece of wood and create something even more beautiful out of it. Or maybe it's just the kid inside who never traded the wonder of  his crayons & coloring books for the more mature things in life.

  3. I am impressed! He does magnificent work. It's one thing to see something in a piece of wood, but to turn it into that for others to see is amazing.
