Acrylic on x-ray, painted with a palette knife: 24 × 30 cm. “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours.” — Ayn Rand (Russian born American Writer and Novelist, 1905-1982) FEATURED in Living Christianity 16 October 2010. FEATURED in Shapes and Patterns 3 November 2010.
