Today's inspiration is from beyond the grave, the artist Alberto Giacometti whose Walking Man I sculpture sold for $104.3 million dollars and broke a world record. Even though he's not here to reap the benefits of his labor of love, I'm sure his family/foundation is very proud of his achievements. As an artist this has inspired me to continue working hard at my craft —experimenting, adjusting and striving to be a better artist, a better entrepreneur, a better Re (me). Perfection is not realistic. Nothing man-made is ever perfect. But creating art that is appealing to the senses and emotions is timeless. I believe most of us strive to be successful and sell as much of our work as possible, for as much as we can get. Although being able to leave behind a high quality, body of work that will increase in value and maintain its appeal for generations to come, is an artist's ultimate reward here on earth!
So back to work....
