I return to studio tomorrow. As I review my planner, sketches, and notes, I am most impressed with a sense that 2018 will be a year with forward momentum. The world seems to be awake and in motion, and that is a good thing.
With the Winter Olympics fast approaching, I am preparing for works that capture the beauty and power of the games and of the athletes' spirit and form. New records will be set; new heroes will emerge. Old dreams will be realized and new dreams will be born.
We are also close to incredible gains in other areas of our lives: Science, technology, philosophy, and of course art.
It might one day be described as a new renaissance or enlightenment, or perhaps as something else altogether, but 2018 definitely marks the beginning of a special time.
I look forward to sharing it with you.
Happy New Year!
