My Favorite Piece?


I am often asked if I have a favorite piece and I have to imagine that such a question is similar to asking a mother to name her favorite child. For me, every piece is special and has been developed for its own purpose and sometimes that purpose is as surprising to me as it may be to you.  


I recently met a friend for dinner, he was in town for meetings and we hadn’t seen each other for a few years so it was nice to catch up. When we got to talking about my art he asked if a particular piece was someone important to me; the piece struck him as if it was. I explained that the character was not someone specific but I welcomed his interpretation because I hadn’t thought about it in that way.  I share this conversation because while each piece tells a story and I share some of those stories, it is only one version. My hope is that something will resonate with you about a piece and you can enjoy it from that perspective, but it doesn’t have to be my perspective.  


So, coming full circle as to a favorite piece, the answer is that I have favorite aspects of each piece while I may wish to revisit other aspects in that same piece. However, in the end, all of my pieces are special each one reminds me of our shared humanity, and that makes the outcome worthwhile.
