As an artist, finding inspiration is not always easy. I have had the privilege of watching West Fraser create his artwork for my entire life–a privilege I do not take lightly. It never ceases to amaze me what West can create from a blank canvas. There are times when I have watched a painting slowly come to life over several weeks, and other times when it seems that the painting sprang to life over night. These scenarios represent the challenges of inspiration.
Thank you Gibbes Museum for sharing this with us. It’s always good to know that funds are being used in the manner in which they were intended. Keep up the great work in arts education! We need you.
