Art stories to inspire, inform and delight — delivered to you with my very best wishes.

Through my art society, I met many people. Some taught me. Some inspired me. But more importantly than that, we empowered each other by who we are.

The Olympic Agora 2021: Synthesizing Sport and Art

“For half my life, I trained my body and competed in sports.
The other half, I traveled and created paintings.
Through sports, I stay strong.
Through art, I unearth beauty.
Sports and art help me to swim upstream.
For the Tokyo 2020 Games, I am super pleased that 6 of my artworks found their place on the starting blocks in the center of Tokyo for all to share.”
-Gregory Burns
