In life you may not get that chance, but you can get it on paper. Here is a sketch I did for a gift, from a father to his son.
Titled appropriately “The Magnificent Four” Featuring his son, Bob Dylan, Brett Favre and Johnny Depp.
We all have hero’s, mentor’s and teachers, have you ever wondered what you would talk about if you met one of them? I do often, and I also wonder if perhaps, I would be to tongue tied to ask them anything.
I’d like to have met Crazy Horse and listen to the thoughts of a warrior fighting for all he believes in.
I’d like to have been able to sit down with Jim Morrison and ask him how some of his music was so enchanting, yet his poetry so disturbing.
I’d like to ask Stevie Ray where he felt his passion came from, and hear his stories of his teen years.
I’d like to sit down with Morgan Freeman and just listen to one of his stories, about anything, he has a great story telling voice that is somewhat hypnotic.
Can you imagine going out with the girls for cocktails if you were in the company of Katherine Hepburn, Betty White and Candice Bergen?
Whose your hero in the real world? What would you like to ask yours?.
I painted this cross about two years ago, in front of a church in Wauconda, about 10 feet high and 6 feet wide.. it’s made to look like birch bark and it was befitting to add to this post.
We all have our crosses to bare, and we all have issues in our lives that keep us from being the true people we can be.
Let your true self come through! You will be amazed at what you can accomplish and how it will effect you as well as those around you!
Dwelling on the crosses that we have to bare will only drain your soul. We make decisions for a reason, we are in situations for a reason, learning to understand those reasons is one big mystery, but it can also be a lesson plan for our future..
