There was a time that I idolized Robert Rauschenburg and his work. I created a few pieces following his style hoping it would be a commercial success for me. Unfortunately that isn’t the way it works, especially for me. It seems that truth in art always prevails. And while I love these pieces my effort to piggyback onto RR’s fame did not work. So I’m posting them to say finding your voice and your truth is where it’s at both spiritually and commercially. And, and this is a big and, if you are successful doing your version of another artist’s work it is ultimately not you and will ultimately not be satisfying. No amount of money can change that, so being genuine, trust yourself and explore.
