Painting and the Artist

Wonderful Art
I don’t know who to attribute this quote to; I’ve had it in my file for a while.
What I love about this quote is the passion, and the writer’s knowledge of how enriched life is when you paint, or draw.  That there are times when a single paint stroke creates magic. That it is wonderful to paint a face.  One night in class, I looked again at the portrait I was doing and realized I had given the sitter 3 nostrils.  It made me crack up!  I brought my friend over to look at it, and she said, “Who do ya think you are, Picasso?”
This is why we’re told to stand back and look at our paintings, otherwise we can get a little too involved with one nose!!
But that’s the beauty of oil – you can change and cover up whatever you want.
