A few weeks ago I fell in love with the atmosphere, art, and the Biltmore I found in North Carolina.
My visit gave me a greater appreciation of the world of individuality, art, and wealth.
Last weekend I wandered through the competition barn of a small county fair.
When I came upon the Art Show, I knew I had come full circle.
I realized that this is where it all starts.
This is where Jackson Pollock and John Singer Sargent began.
Where Dali dabbled and Wiggans wandered.
This is where Richard Morris Hunt found architecture and Katsushika Hokusai played with ink drawings.
Where either because of a parent’s encouragement or despite lack of it, a creativity seed found fertility and grew.
This is the uncharted land of creativity, of space and design and imagination.
