why i make art...

for all of my life, there's been this hole. i'm fulfilled by love, by family, by the lives and accomplishments of my children, by the greatest marriage i could ever imagine. and yet. the hole is there, even if sometimes it's only small.

and sometimes. when i'm lucky. whenever everything's working in my favor....

there's a moment while creating...when that hole is filled.  

even if for only a fleeting moment.

its enough to keep me going.
