What would Michelangelo do today?

Michelangelo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel from 1508 to 1512. If he had lived today he would have forgone the painting and sculpting and probably drawn graphic novels instead.  Could you imagine the reaction you would get today if asked what your hobby was and you replied, “I have a 12 ton block of granite in the back yard and I’m chiseling the naked image of David”.  But we’ve evolved beyond this point.  Nobody would think twice if they saw you sculpting a grizzly bear out of an old tree stump in your front yard with a chainsaw.imageNow that’s a giving tree.
