Find the Art in Your Life

Whether your art is the scan of charcoal sketch, an Instagram photo, the poem you just finished, or the snapshot of a culinary creation, you are welcome to submit your work. We continue this blog to honor LeRoy Neiman (1921-2012).
The creation process is a process that happens every moment of our lives because it’s out of the range of time and space.

Theories such as the Big Bang or any theory of how the world was created true or not, they all seem to point out that the creation happened in the distant past.

According to this at some point the world as we know it started and since then it kept growing and spreading.  

But if time and space were created it means that the whole process of the creation is outside and above time and space, and therefore: It means that the creation process is involved in time and space and it’s actually happening every single moment.

I met LeRoy Neiman when I was 16 years old, back in 1975. This is a portrait he did of me to commemorate that day. He has touched my life like no other person ever has.
When I was a kid, all of my friends wanted to be the great athletes that were in his paintings. I wanted to be the man that painted them.
Thank you my friend for a life of inspiration and encouragement. I will truly miss you.
Love
