Artist Robert Harney started his painting career quite by accident after moving from Boston to the more rustic setting of Mansfield, Massachusetts over twenty years ago. He is a self-taught artist whose raw and versatile talent shows up in his work.
What I find fascinating about Robert is that he is essentially an accidental artist who discovered his talent later in life. His creativity has now become his calling, and after a long career in the business world, he is willing to follow the urgings of his heart wherever they may lead him.
Like Robert, may you discover that when you pour your heart into what you do, you serve as a pure channel for the divine force within you that demands expression.
A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.
I discovered Robert when I was searching for an image to accompany a blog post and I found “Forlorn Adia,” which struck me as hauntingly beautiful.
