Terrance Osborne - Terrance’s favorite piece (and one of ours, too) is a painting entitled From Nothing. “I believe that everything comes from nothing, that nothing is everything. When you fully understand that, you see how beautiful life really is. What's great about the piece is that it's open to universal interpretation and what else do you want as an artist than to create something that everyone can take something from. I love the pieces that I can share.” -
