On December 29th, 2013, PETE IPPEL is hereby recognized as having completed four years of making his artistic life flourish physically and creatively without compromising aesthetics in any way.
In recognition of choosing a different path, his own path, we hereby certify that PETE IPPEL has put judgment aside for more than just one moment and continued to dream.
Henceforth we declare today annual ALL RISK DAY to renew the vows to oneself, in part inspired by the words of Henry David Thoreau to "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Life the life you have imagined."

On December 29th, 2009, I moved into my studio in Ventura. Yesterday, after four years I made a certificate of achievement and renewed my vows to make a commitment to myself to keep following my dreams.
I met some folks Ron and Martha on the beach and they snapped this photo of me while I was doing some self-portraits. The relaxed smile is much more apparent when looking at a camera with a person behind it rather than the tripod ;-D
The text of the certificate is written above.
