Who am I? (Artist statement, part 4)

What is my mission as an artist? To live fully -- to leave a record of my experience -- to translate the entirety of my living into my own language, my own form, my own expression -- to rewrite the world. And to encourage and inspire others to do the same.

I have to say this is my favorite installment so far. At first I had a white background but I thought it needed something more. After spending a couple of hours with Carla I was inspired to try mixing in a new medium (colored pencil). I like that it adds motion, though I’m honestly not sure which version I prefer: the one with the pencil, or the one without.
