Leslie herself is an artist who founded PATH as a result ofher introduction to incarcerated art.Her introduction to inmate art was as a result from attending the Fifth Annual Inmate Art Auction. Upon receiving her won auctions of art in the mail, she was impressed by the skill. Because inmates have such limited resources at their disposal, they must be innovative.Two Points of View, Same Conclusion!Much like Leslie, I too have an appreciation for inmate art, however my initial exposure was because I was in prison. Some of the most brilliant minded individuals I have ever met were as a result of my stay in the pen. Sure, there was a lot of evil people on the inside of coarse.Whether art comes from the hands of a killer, or a Harvard graduate has no merit to it’s quality. Because Leslie is an artist herself, the quality of her chosen works shows in the Path Collection.In fact, some of the most evil and sinister individuals I have encountered chances are wont ever goto prison. Whether evil or good, as a result of it’s chaotic environment, prison is a breeding ground for brilliance. When I came to prison I prided myself on being a very intelligent individual, with a vicious Chess game. It took about 8 months, but I finally met my match.A chicano who went by “Ghost” handed me my ass with scotch opening, and didn’t even know wtf Fide was! Like most at the highest level amongst the elite he had etiquette and thanked me for a good match! Ghost and I became friends before long. It was because of his crew I was exposed to some of the most beautiful art I’d ever seen.These Mexican Americans could make the most brilliant things from nothing! Some of those men whether right or wrong will be there for many more years to come. So knowing that because of people like leslie giving them exposure, the Path Collection warms my heart. ❤️[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row make_fullwidth=”on” use_custom_gutter=”on”

    1. That may be true in such cases of a savant’s like Van Gogh. I find it difficult to relate to any justification for cutting my own ear off on the subject of romance. However you seemed quite easy to understand Cy. As I recall your art was definitely talent 😀

      My good friend who was unfortunate to be a successful pothead at the wrong place at the wrong time.

      That same substance Jason Smokes while slandering individuals for much the same. How do you justify that Dearest Watson?

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
