Aiming High

The greatest danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short… but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark. ~ Michelangelo (1475-1564)

A number of people have asked me: will you be selling your works online or in an art gallery? I suppose I will in time. That would be nice. I will naturally be doing works for which that will be appropriate. But, I am setting my aim higher. I see my works being in a scale that requires an outdoor or a large lobby setting. If I “aim too high and fall short”, so be it. But, “setting (my) aim too low and achieving (my) mark” has no appeal to me. It cannot drive me. It will not allow me to become the extraordinary sculptor I desire to be. Whether I achieve my aim or not will be for others to decide. All I can do is aim high, go where my heart and spirit takes me, and let the world do with it what it will. Then, “falling short” will not be failure. James Gabbert June 2009
