When I see this picture it reminds me of one word: Potential.
The artist's subject is an egg, but this is not what is showing up on his canvas. He is seeing beyond the egg to what the egg will one day become. It takes a special person to see potential in others.
I know this to be true because I can think of a handful of people that have invested themselves in my life that had to look beyond the big fat egg named Anthony standing right before them.
I can say with 100 percent certainty that without these key individuals seeing down the road to the (almost) finished product of the Anthony you all know today ... I would resemble more of a Pigeon than an Eagle.
"The things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others."
2 Timothy 2:2
