Attention to Detail in Miniature

As writers we carefully craft our words. This requires much creativity and diligence. As we chisel away at our prose, another artist uses crafts the pencil itself into another form of creativity.

Artis Dalton J. Paul Getty has a unique gift of creating miniature sculptures with pencils. The attention to detail, patience, and perseverance this incredible art form requires is hard to comprehend. His tools: tiny blades and needles. To spare his eyes he only works an hour or so per day and the completion of one sculpture may take one or two years to complete.

Just amazing, isn't it? You are, too. Let's use our own creativity and take a lesson from Mr. Getty to pace ourselves and persevere as we artfully craft our words in our own medium and allow our own original details reveal a beautiful and unique piece of art.
