Rose in the Style of Picasso
8x6in oil on canvas board 100.
Painting in the style of means not copying an artist's actual painting, but coming up with your own interpretation...which is much easier and fun!
Picasso produced an immense output of work. I have read it is over 20,000 pieces, which boggles my mind. His creative versatility and the ability to continually develop new stylistic resources, led him along the path of having as many critics as admirers.
I am an admirer - his work has never bored me.
"There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterwards you can remove all traces of reality."
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
