"And suddenly...you know it's time to trust the magic of new beginnings"
For months I've been drafting a design for a new carving which uses line and depth to create a dream like portrait. My goal is to create a carving which pays respect to my ancestors' voyage through history, while celebrating the culture, dreams and visions of arriving in Canada. It will be the most experimental piece I've yet to carve, but I've hesitated to begin the carving process. Today I realized the hesitation was caused by fear of experimenting with new styles, exposing my inner muse, and simply delving deeper into art for art sake. Sometimes we just have to take that halting breath and suddenly carve a new beginning. Today is that day.
