Quote of the Week

This past weekend I went to see "Picasso: Mosqueteros" at the Gagosian Gallery. This masterful show reminded me of why I fell in love with art. As a child I didn't care how good something was or if it had meaning. I just loved playing with colors. It was fun. Pure creativity. Unedited. I was a genius. I believe, we start off as geniuses. We are like a mold of clay, except we are already perfect. Along the way situations, people... they chisel away at you. You change. And you forget. But, now I remember. I think today, I will pick up a brush, mix some paint and just have fun.

“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” —Pablo Picasso
