After spending a week with the sculptor, Richard MacDonald, I learned a lot about myself and what it takes to make fine art. MacDonald created the monumental bronze, THE FLAIR, in Atlanta, and has done other great public works. It seems to me that the best art begins somewhere way back in the artist’s experience and life, and strangely emerges from a place of deep humility to a place of confident expression. If you will, it has a sense of flair about it, and it didn’t take too long to see that Richard MacDonald certainly has that. Successes and failures happen in the studio of every artist and prompt the question, if we don’t revisit that place of humility, will the inspiration dry up?
