I saw this magnificent unfinished portrait at FOD and could not help marvelling at not just the talent and skill of the artist but also reading deeper into David’s mesmerising beauty and much higher potential.
Is David Archuleta, like the unfinished drawing, a Work In Progress?
Is there much more to his talent and ability that is still to be revealed?
I would very much like to think so or else I would not be still anxiously hanging around. I do not believe we have “come to the end of the road” as some disenchanted archies have pessimistically put it.
I believe in the classic – the eternal. In music … in beauty … in art … in talent … in gifts bestowed which will not leave, denied.
I believe David has a yearning. Not just in his faith. But also in the music which is pounding in his heart.
The Work is still in progress. One day it could very well gradually reach completion and perfection.
And, hey, I want to be around when that happens. 🙂
