Museum Study

Aristotle

On my visit to the museum, I also paid a visit to Aristotle and rendered him in graphite. After rendering, I am now reading up on what is left to us of his thoughts.

Stand fast and meet the challenges presented to you. Don’t be afraid to set your boundaries. No is just as beneficial and valid as yes.

What’s around the corner? You’ll only know if you look. The unknown lies in the realm of imagination and can take on any shape or size you can conceive of.
