Time to go

I hate long good byes. Matter fact i’d rather simply say see you soon, since time is such a relative man made concept. My time here traveling has been a blessing made new friends and saw some old ones ate some great food and saw some great art.

Important Things
Is not.
Tis true I love to travel and a long as I can drag these borrowed bones around I hope to do so. Then after that I’m not sure what I’ll do. Not travel I suppose. In just a few short hours I’ll be boarding the first of two flights home and doing my best to settle into some sort of regular routine. Some pretty crazy stuff happened at home whilst I was gone but I’ll save that story for another day. Whilst away I did receive some pretty good news though. The owner of a local shop Cafe Viola in Portland Oregon contacted me directly and asked me if I could show my work for a six week run starting late April! Very cool considering they contacted me. Then I also currently have some work in NY that was seen by a well established and long time art critic and she gave a number of my pieces her personal approval. Which to me is HUGE!! As some artist will go their entire lives and never even get noticed by people at that level of the art world. So even if nothing ever comes from either of these life events as an artist at least I can say they happened. To me these events start to solidify the idea I had as a very young artist and a thought I had when I decided it was time once again to show the world the art of Benjamin. If Picasso, Pollock and Miro can do it, then I can too. Every goal in life is a journey and puzzle the trick as a person on that path is to figure out how to make it happen. I’d like to think I’m on my way to doing so. 43 years old and recognized as an international artist, yeah I think I can live with that. All part of my master plan for world domination mwahhahahah, sorry for the evil scientist there, I’ve been up all night long. Apparently the sandman decided he didn’t care to come see me. Oh well I don’t like him much either. For those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook I’ll be talking to you later as I make my way across the country, as for everyone else I’ll see you when I get home. Take away from this wild ramble of mine. Follow your heart, do what your passionate about and NEVER EVER! Believe the haters when they say it can’t be done, be smart and find a way to turn your dreams into a reality. It can be done.

Oh and when I get back I’ll be working on the angel again, I saw the piece that originally inspired me to do an odd shape piece while on my adventure.

So until we meet again, Be brave, Be bold and Thrive in the life you have.

Much love,
