“All Children are artists.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”  Pablo Picasso.

The most beautiful, heartfelt pieces of artwork are often created by children;  a curvy line can be the feeling of a song, a circle filled in with yellow could be the warmth of a mother’s hug, or a squiggly line could be the thoughts of running and jumping.  A child’s artwork is free-flowing and uninhibited by preconceived notions.  As an artist, isn’t that what we are always striving for?

A contemporary sculpture elicits different impressions from different individuals.  One person sees an animal, another sees a sail boat, and yet another individual could see a sunset.  And why does that sculpture need to represent anything anyway?   Why not a feeling, an emotion, a memory?  If that contemporary sculpture elicits a feeling, an emotion or a memory (good or bad), then the sculptor has succeeded!

“It took me 4 years to paint like Rapheal, but a lifetime to paint like a child”  Pablo Picasso
