The final version of the other piece that I shared last week. A little bit about where both of these pieces are going: they will both be featured in Houston's largest silent art auction supporting the community development organization, Avenue. I'm honored to be one of the 250 local artists participating in the event which is held over two days November 1 and 3) at Winter Street Studios. If you're in the area I'd love to see you there! The quote that is featured on this one is also by Marcus Aurelius: "If thou workest at that which is before thee, following right reason seriously, vigorously, calmly, without allowing anything else to distract thee, but keeping thy divine part pure, as if thou shouldst be bound to give it back immediately; if thou holdest to this, expecting nothing, fearing nothing, but satisfied with thy present activity according to nature, and with heroic truth in every word and sound which thou utterest, thou wilt live happy. And there is no man who is able to prevent this."
