I recently opened a Chinese fortune cookie and read my fortune. Most fortunes are fun to read, laugh at, share and then throw away. This one was different.

It meant something very special to me. It kind of took my breath way. This fortune identified and exposed “at the core” my philosophy and what I try to do as a painter. Being devout artists and painters we all have to have "the ability to sense and know higher truths". It really doesn't matter what art medium you practice, it is what we strive each day as we produce our work. Higher Truth. So I'm sending this fortune out to all my fellow artists as a reminder. Unfortunately I ate the cookie so you’re out of luck there!
