Ben: Acrylic on Canvas

Check this out,
I got an email way back on Oct. 3rd from an artist and teacher named Winnie who said she was in the process of creating an art piece inspired by our segement she heard on the cbc. I just received an email from her yesterday saying her piece was finally finished, below is her artist statement:

I first heard this group on the CBC discussing their plans to complete all the items on their life list while helping other people to achieve their own dreams. I love this idea. Why not write yourself an epic list of things you would like to do before you die? If you write down your unrestrained aspirations you are at least a step closer to achieving them. Sharing your dreams with others is an even closer step. It is also self-describing to reflect on what you would do if anything were possible. Revealing your hopes reveals something of yourself and it takes a bit a courage (not to mention time) to share your desires with the world. Thank you to everyone who offered their "buried life" list!

I leave you with a quote that Duncan, Ben, Dave and Jonnie have on their website:

Ferris Bueller said, "life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it."

The art work is on display in St. Catherines Ontario at St. Josephs Highschool today from 5-7pm...if you're in the area, drop in and check it out for us and give Winnie a high-five for me.
