Artist's Inspiration - Courage comes in giving up fear, it is found in doing what you must do. I realized I had formed two wings by expanding the wax as far as it could go. The image was undeniable and the message clear. Our wings, our strength, appear when we are stretched as far as we can go and we must carry on. Using my chisel, one of few tools used in this collection, I further defined the wings into a deeply carved design - much like what happens to us when we go through an experience which creates a courageous response. It is the determined move which shapes us. The "V" was obvious and so was the inspiration, my friend, Mike. He was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for seven years. Courage has a halo because it is connected to the spiritual, not the physical. It is about a strength that is honorable because it is vulnerable and real. There are many kinds of battles, some global and some personal, and they all require a journey of mind and spirit to face and to walk through. Behind victory, is inner strength and inner beauty which come from the heart ... the place where hope lives.
