Self, Limited Edition, Version 2347

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” — e.e. cummings

There’s an interesting phenomenon in art, where everyone thinks the artist doesn’t want to be seen.  When in truth, each one of us, artist or not, has been told not to be boastful, not to brag, and not to be proud of who we are or where we are.  So an artist, who is no one more than someone who had such an irrational desire to express themselves that they became good at an outlet that allowed them to do that without ridicule, would really probably rather share just themselves with you but are afraid of being labeled selfish or boastful.

Somewhere between being dumped a hundred times and going through a Masters program without any idea what I was doing, I lost that fear.  So, today’s art installment is me.  On a Tuesday morning.
