Most Everything I Artistically Am

I owe to my daddy.

 

I am reading ‘The Alchemist‘ for the first time. For those of you who don’t know it, sadly, like me last week, it’s a book about a boy who travels to a far land in search of his Personal Legend. He is unsure of what to do, and where to go, when a king comes to him and sets him on course to follow his dreams. 

 

Growing up we often called my father “King Daddy”.  I know that what I do here in New York at my perfect little studio is my pursuit of my Personal Legend. I know that this path that I sometimes think begun with a duffel bag and a plane ticket HNL –> JFK really started 28 years ago, when my father allowed me sable brushes, cold pressed paper and master tutelage for my childhood chicken scratch drawings.  

 

Happy Faddo’s Day, Dad.
I love you.
