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.

Andrew Ricci and Drew Ricci: Father,Son and Fellow Artists

On Sunday,August 16th,I attended the exhibit of friend, Andy Ricci and his son Drew,himself a young emerging artist. This father and son team displayed an impressive body of work at this well attended event. Sponsored by the Berkeley Community Arts Alliance at the Faith Community Church Hall in Bayville, NJ, Andy's paintings and drawings and Drew's photos and prints could be viewed during this one day exhibition.
I met other artists while there with my friend Marlene. It never ceases to amaze me, the power that art holds, to unite a community. Andy and I worked together for nearly 8 years, collaborating on the creation of silk screened materials for amusement games. Andy Ricci is the owner of Thumbs Up Screen Printing and a master printer:)
Congratulations Andy and Drew. It was a pleasure:)
