PORTRAIT OF AN ARTIST- PABLO PICASSO

I want to share with you guys a quote by one my most admired artists- Pablo Picasso. His work first really caught my eye when I was in college when I was researching about cubism and the post-modern art movement. What I love about his work is that he sees the world in two-dimensions. I learned so much about shapes and how they relate to one another when I studied his work and his approach to making you believe something is three-dimensional. It is really fascinating to think and paint that way!

I was inspired by this quote I found today so I thought I'd get out my pens and draw a portrait of him. I think I should remind myself more of this quote each day. After all, children are the most curious beings, and that curiosity is the most genuine and beautiful thing that one can carry through adulthood.

So stay curious, my friend!
