i never thought i could but i did. i guess "YES I CAN" is really sinking in. and it really has my creative juices going. brought out the paints and pastels i dread so much and just gave it my all with my version of a modigliani. funny thing is i had just seen the film about a week ago with Andy Garcia. i thought it pretty good. one particular scene was excellent... when all the painters from that era are in their studios creating their masterpieces for a competition. the takes on each artist as the music plays is fantastic. i hope it is liked in the challenge. i have a feeling i will be painting a few more since there are too many artists to chose from.
