Mike Wurman, Pastels
I truly believe my art is 2,200 miles in the making. When I took that first step on the Appalachian Trail in Georgia on my way to Maine, I was searching for positive self-assurance in myself and my abilities. It wasn't until I completed the entire 2,200-mile pilgrimage, that I discovered my true potential as an artist. The most significant discovery, something I always felt I lacked, was passion. Once I found that, everything seemed to fall into place. With every new piece I complete, my ultimate goal is for the viewer to experience emotions as if they were on their own self-fulfilling journey.
