When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

  1. Jude,
    Congratulations on getting into the P&B show! It's a very well-known venue that indeed should be perfect for your work. I used to live a few blocks from there and often went to sketch classes at Salmagundi around the corner. Also, good luck with the piece in the Small Works show!

  2. omg, Jude! how exciting for you! we're all very proud!
