When John Hulsey and Ann Trusty told me the name of their website—The Artist’s Road—I
smiled to myself because they got it so right! Art—painting, drawing,
sculpting, all of it—is a path, a journey. Sometimes the path is smooth
and things go right, and sometimes it is rocky and you have to
backtrack or go off the road completely to get where you want to go.
I've been waiting all my life to have a red-carpet moment, but who
knows when the Academy will get around to remembering my searing
director's debut at the age of 14, when I put on a musical version of
Hamlet to the theme song of The Beatles' "Obladi Oblada." (Maybe you
had to be there.) So I've decided to take matters into my own hands—not
to hog the limelight for myself, but to bestow accolades and acclaim to
a few of the brightest and best resources in our Artist Daily store!
