Who is the real Beast?
Today marks another day in the evolution of life as an artist. As we develop we take a lot of the ideas and concepts of the past and totally smash them to pieces. But it is important not to throw those pieces away. Whether it is an old technique, idea or feeling we have evolved beyond, it is important to hold on to all those little bits and piece of information that we learned in creating them. The bricks of our foundation are made from the crumbled rock of the stones that came before it. We don’t discard what we have created, but rather, we use what we have learned before in a better more deliberate way to build a future for ourselves and our work.
In this update I am again removing a piece that taught me so much and introducing a piece that has within it the essence of the old. The original was an homage to a story my father told when I was a small child. It was about the struggle and ultimate demise of both the hunter and the hunted as they pursuit one another to their ultimate deaths. It is now replaced by another form of “beast”. The almighty beast that is a woman with power and determination. A women who, in all realty, can be far more terrifying then a monstrous lion.
