Artists are courageous and committed people. They are committed to pursue, what they believe is their higher calling – to create art. In following their passion, their mission, their purpose in life, they expose themselves and their art to evaluation, judgement and criticism. We admire those who take such risks, give their best and overcome their fear to bring gifts to the world: art and inspiration to others. This week, we give thanks to one such artist, Ray Masters, our Artist of the Week.
