how much optimism

 

How much optimism does it take to buy art as a Cat 5 hurricane comes towards you? A gentleman in Bermuda purchased "Toy Top With Tug-O-War" last night, as he prepares for Irma. Today I sit here, watching the spaghetti forecasts slice through my home state of Florida, and I can only imagine why someone would think of art while facing a crisis.

This happened once before, when a New York City customer bought one of my pieces as Sandy raged outside his window. Perhaps art can be healing, giving us a sense of the beautiful during a crisis. If so, I consider it a privilege to create such work.
