Rise and Shine

Project Description

Change takes place from within. Everyday is another chance to look at the world and see that the part of it one can transform most directly is oneself. And to know each action we take no matter how small, makes a difference like the “Butterfly Effect” that transfers the energy of the flutter of a fragile wing towards a hurricane strength storm. This is the subtle power of art, to cultivate growth and transformation that may manifest with a sudden immediacy of inspiration or travel within the viewer to emerge years later; consequences awaiting a chance to flower. It is the hope of this piece to reflect something special to everyone passing by: themselves and what they can be.
