What is the thing that scares me the most?

It is the possibility of humiliation that can come with being close to another and then rejected and abandoned.  I believe it is the most potent pain.  Therefore it has the greatest potential for beauty.

What is the rule?

Go towards the fear.

Here is a 20 ft painting that I created in 2005 while attending an artists residency at the Vermont Studio Center for a month  

In this painting I was exploring the pain that happens through separation.  Today I am separating the painting into four panels.  I will paint over-- add to, adjust three of them.  I am a human being and I love the possibility of making it better.  Icarus is my best friend.

Seth Godin writes about the importance of risk taking and art making in his book, The Icarus Deception.
