The path art takes is a fascinating thing to behold. Without one, the other would not exist; the chain is broken. Each piece is wonderful. This is just one more reason why, despite nagging self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy every artist eventually runs into, we should grab inspiration when it hits us and make something. Create something and toss it out into the world. Fantastic things just might sprout from your creation.
Special thanks to John for being my inspiration and to Wendy for continuing the story.
