This is a collage piece I did with the newspaper's front page news when my studio and business went up in flames one icy winter morning in January of 2003. I rented the basement of this foam cutting factory. It was a huge building and one of the employees sneaking a smoke where it wasn't allowed destroyed this 100 plus year old millwork factory in just a few hours. No one was hurt! This is a special day in my life as I learned some wonderful lessons on how to deal with what at first seemed total devastation and as usual ended up a blessing in disguise. This is the tale of the phoenix rising from the ashes. You sometimes have to let go of the way things are to have them the way you want. Always find the lesson, dust yourself off and get moving again.
