express yourself

Express Yourself, 17 x 14, watercolor and ink on paper

Read. Study. Look. 


You never know what will happen when you open yourself to the traditions that came before you. 

The art of an artist must be his own art. It is... always a continuous chain of little inventions, little technical discoveries of one's own, in one's relation to the tool, the material and the colors.

Bravo!!!!!!! I hope you keep this one - it is a breakthrough piece, IMO. But, then again, I know I'll get to see it someday.

Also, I saved all of the videos, as the only one I had seen is the Matisse one. It is a delight to look at the Modernists, and to follow...

Thanks, Casey! My monotype class is making me think of things upside down and differently than every before. Not necessarily from what's said in the class, but how it turns on my own thinking and sense of wonder. I like this, too.
