“Blessed” is about accepting the challenge of bringing love to places and triumphs we thought out of our reach. It is one thing to struggle to the top in this world; it is another to do so with one’s character and conscience intact, and the love of family and friends unbroken. A similar message is echoed in the bronze sculpture, “Ascension”. This image encourages the viewer to answer one’s own life questions. Is the end of the journey near? Or does the struggle continue on?
