It has been said, "Life is short, art is long." Why is that?
Of all the works ever created some are remembered; viewed again and again. The greatest works live on for centuries and even longer.
Art that endures... touches people. It isn't just the form.
Art that lasts... elicits emotion, inspires, conveys a message, pulls in the viewer, keeps them there and has meaning to the viewer.
Such are the qualities of great art.
My goal as an artist is to strive to create great and lasting art.
