Here is a question that you might have to give some thought to answer - Would you give your life for your art? I am no hero nor do I have a hero complex, or any delusions of grandeur. I would give my life for, my wife, my friends, and my art. Every day I wake up, I give a personal vow to God to protect my life, the lives of my loved ones, those close to me and the helpless. I would protect them with my art including any guns and knives I have on me at the time. I do my best not to be driven by pride and ego and try to be forgiving and compassionate. I will do my best to turn one cheek..... If I do not survive, then I would die.....with my art. It is all I know and is what I would use. It is what I believe in. How about you?
