“Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, we're afraid!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, We will fall!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
And so they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.”
Guillaume Apollinaire

Open Studio is about the exhilarating freedom of learning to fly. It's about daring and courage, patience and persistence, exploration and discovery.

Open Studio is about loosing the bonds of expectation and becoming one's authentic self....the painter for whom your Muse has been waiting.
