Searching On Display at Panache Fine Jewelry and Art Gallery in Ogunquit, ME

2020 has especially been a year of searching. Searching for a vaccine, searching for answers to a barrage of questions about life, society and us as a human race. Many are searching for strength within ourselves to keep going in the face of unprecedented challenges.

But the positive thing about searching is it promises discovery along with the risk. So, we must continue to search for answers to make us a better human race and allow our soul to soar.

“It wasn’t so much that I was in search of answers. In fact, I was wary of the whole idea of answers. I wanted to climb all the way inside of the questions and see what was there.”
― 
Dani Shapiro, Devotion: A Memoir

“Follow your heart; but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart” –  Carl W. Buechner

Searching As The Artist

“First, one seeks to become an artist by training the hand – techniques. Then one finds it is the eye that needs improving – drawing skills. Later, one learns it is the mind that wants developing – design or composition, only to discover that the ultimate quest of the artist is in the spirit – content. (Larry Brullo)

As an artist, I am always searching for my inner self and artist voice. Sometimes I need not search at all, it is just there; and other times, it is hidden from me by my fears and unwillingness to just be myself. As I am sure most artists do, we compare ourselves and talent to others, always striving to improve our craft. Like many artists, I feel that I’m always looking for something indefinable, something that’s always just out of reach.

“Don’t become overly enamored with nature. Don’t fall in love with another artist’s work. Don’t be mesmerized by a photograph. Your painting is not there.” (Robert Bissett)

The positive thing about searching is it promises discovery along with the risk. Perhaps, I might even discover that the truth is that I am already the artist that I am seeking. I only need to have faith and let my spirit be represented on the canvas. 

“I feel like I’ve finally found my place, and it’s here on the canvas. Here I soar.” (Laura Harris)

“And so, I search for truth through my art, which is to say, my art is only a vehicle for my freedom.” (Ian Factor)

This painting can also be hung vertical 48×24
