"We must believe we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained."
"I know God would not give me anything I couldn't handle, I just wish he didn't trust me so much."
"Be happy with what you have,
while you work toward what you want."
"Wars begin where you will,
but they do not end where you please."
This is a wise quote from a visionary, generous, self-taught Artist who I greatly admired and respected, Bert L. Long Jr.
“As artists we have the obligation to provide the world with art which communicates as truth. I believe that art has the power to heal our souls of their afflictions. I try to create art which helps to diagnose the prevalent conditions within our societies, hopefully providing an insightfulness which will help us all become brothers and sisters united in equality and compassion”
