    Art is the future
    Ever since I can remember I want to be an artist. Well, inventor originally, but ever since I realize what it means that you can choose what you want to be I want to be an artist. I want to be, but never got to be, or chose to be. Reality always seemed to keep me from making that choice; there were responsible choices and money to be made.

    For me art is about the future.

    Right now I could not be further from the place where I was when I originally could make the choice to be an artist; 20 years later, I have a wife and 2 children, a house and mortgage, my own (one man) design company which is doing great. If ever there was a time when I could choose without paying attention to my responsibilities, this is not it. I am not complaining. I have a great life, so lucky in so many ways. Nothing to wish for of any substance, really.

    Still I want to be an artist. (Why? dunno, let's leave that to another post) I decided some time ago that I will do this, devote some part of my time to this, just start being one. See what happens.

    The image below is Kylie Minogue, four images blended to create an ghost/ idea of Kylie and of fame/ beauty. It's the first piece I made when I decided to make art (again).

    Great question Olena. Brought up a lot of thoughts. I will write a separate post addressing this.
