|Bob Worthy||Biography: Making art is a spiritual experience for me. It is an experience involving both acceptance and acquiescence. It becomes a matter of trusting and letting go. Trusting myself to be the best artist I can be and then allowing myself to be that artist. The act of creation, while problem solving by nature, is also an act of faith and intuition. My best art happens when I surrender myself to the creative process and let my art make itself.
