"Since I've been a professional sculptor and artist for two decades and involved in art for over thirty years, many people have concluded that I'm reaching my "full potential". This thought is totally inconveivable for me. Though middle-aged, I'm still a child with much to learn.

I've always believed that art is always inside the artist. His thoughts are almost constantly working the realm of art. Always designing, redesigning, creating, problem solving and dreaming. Artists must sort through these ever expanding thoughts and make the decisions as to which ones he wishes others to see. Only, then, when a physical product has occurred is it labeled "art". For myself, "full potential" is an unattainable goal. How can one reach such a point, when time is so limited but minds are not? In one lifetime an artist can create thousands of works, yet there are still thousands more in his mind that will only be seen by him.
