The moment that you say ‘Yes’ is the moment that you invite challenge into your life. That moment will lead to a time destined to stretch you. Saying Yes is the direct result of asking the universe, and beginning to recognize how we might champion it.
On your journey, dark and isolating places will call for your resourcefulness. Have faith to take action, stand in front of your giant, practice gentle patience, and share in one and other's burdens. Insight or inspiration will come, granting you willpower and drive reach the peak.
Your Hero story is the next story these canvas will tell. What place will you share, where will you go? You can either gain comfort in the highs and lows of heroes past or wander up the highest peak, of the cloudiest mountain.
Each work features a place that holds meaning for what we share as a collective, the universal feeling of uncertainty. My hope is that these pictures help us to relate to these moments, both before and after of our hero struggles.
Color is an expression of the atmosphere. Focus first and foremost on the horizon - does anything lies beyond it? Focus towards having a goal.
Face your mountain — say Yes and your journey will unfold into a great story about a place that really means something to you. The ‘what-ever’ or ‘where-ever’ you are facing — immovable or insurmountable — just remember these are the places where we begin to share compelling stories.
