Thanksgiving is inspirational to me. I am thankful for the gift of Art, the gift of feeling strongly connected to the human soul, and to the animal life, and to the environment. I am thankful to be able to express, through my work, the power of my compassion towards others, everything, and myself. I wish that this Thanksgiving would bring more recognition to artists. Artists are the essence of the human creation. The world will be less meaningful without us being part of it.
