I painted this recently from my dream walks, those imaginary spaces where the mind travels far away. It is an oil painting, a 16x20 on canvas.
"Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. To have such clarity you must lead a disciplined life. Only then will you know that any path is only a path and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on the path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition. I warn you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary."

Someone contacted me with a request, she wanted me to send her a certificate of authenticity for a painting I sold more than 25 years ago. You have no idea how happy I was to see my old painting and to realize that aside from heavy texture in my new work not much has changed, I still dream of the same places to paint and similar paths to follow.
"Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you."
