“Creativity takes courage.” –Henri Matisse

Creative imagination, artistic motives, and innovative products are unique to human beings and are the source of their cultural achievement.

Prokhorov was always interested in the arts but particular art. However, he also was a concert pianist, a composer, and a writer. He boasted he could learn a profession in approximately a year,” I chuckled when I read he stated he was a professional learner of professions. How many of us are recreating ourselves daily in this precarious economic times? I ‘m grateful for every day that I have the opportunity to recreate me through art.
