Creation is a life, a vocation...definitely not a career; he says. At times holding his hands to his face, as if outlining, sculpting his bones, he spoke a little of the challenge. Despite all of the sacrifice, however, he is sure. Shyly smiling and nodding, there is no question. "Must follow the heart".

I am still surprised by our little city; it holds so many hidden wonders, one of which I met yesterday: Tomasz Misztal. The Polish artist, known for his work in museums in Poland, Germany, Portugal, Switzerland and the Vatican, continues his creation here in a small workshop in SE Portland.

Above, his paintings entitled "Ecce Homo". His latest work is displayed at the OCP center, available by appointment.
