An artist's journey can lead to a jolt of energy that erupts into the creation of amazing pieces of art within you. This eruption is a juxtaposition of everything you know, love and care for. It's not always easy, but when the time and mood are right, it happens.

Sometimes the jolt is like a game of Jeopardy, where you have to take a risk and use everything you know, believe and care for to stay on the game. It's a creative, problem solving experience with much at stake. However, if you risk it all and get it right, you can easily be the joyous champion.

Although an artist's journey can run into dangerous jungles, these can also be very rejuvenating. Hence I keep the Lord's words in Psalm 46:10 close to my heart, "Be still, and know that I am God." May your artistic journey be a blessing!
