As we walk through our daily lives we imbue everyday objects with the power to alter or shape our destiny. Their mere presence in our pockets, room or auspicious location can help us study, work, dream and/or achieve. I used to think this was hocus pocus, but not so anymore.

When life is tough a lucky object can provide a little extra support that makes all the difference. Why not use a talisman if it helps us through a difficult phase in our lives? If I believe myself to be lucky, I will relax and do better than if I worry about luck having left the building. 

“Lucky Bamboo” began as a quick study for a larger piece but is now an artwork in its own right. It is a reminder that talismans serve their purpose, as they have always done. This “Lucky Bamboo” is here to remind you that yes, we do have the potential to alter and shape our destiny, and that the first step is believing that we are capable and lucky.
