“Inspired by Matisse”
You never know what will inspire a drawing or painting.
Here’s the story of this weeks iPad drawing.
“I was in the doctor’s office – door opened to hallway – waiting for doctor to enter.
There it was…
Framed by the open doorway…
A Matisse Print that absolutely captured my eye.
I could not longer focus on my personal health issue.
All I could see was the color, the pattern and the incredible design of the piece.
Out came the smart phone. Snapped away. Yep no camera at hand, just bad phone.
I could not get the photo. Too dark, bad phone.
But I could definitely see it in my minds eye.
And so…the next morning it was out with the iPad and drawing at 6:00 AM.
Yes I was still in bed.
I drew “Matisse Inspired II”
And that began the new morning schedule.
- Awake at 6 AM…
- out with the iPad…
- complete an iPad drawing.
- Upload to Facebook
- Get Out of the bed 7AM
And now I’m starting a new online (via email) drawing class.
Why not inspire others?
I’m doing just that.
The the drawing class concept.
Free for people who believe they can’t draw and for people who want to have fun drawing.
You see, I couldn’t draw at all.
Yes I loved to color in coloring books.
And…I absolutely loved to paint by number.
But…I COULD NOT DRAW.
And at age 27 a friend took me by hand and introduced me to her art school and drawing teacher.
I enrolled, spent 3 years learning how to draw, drawing from the model and studying anatomy.
Yes I can draw today!
For the Last 30 Years
I’ve been teaching people how to draw creatively
They are so proud of themselves after just a few weeks.
A drawing class for people who want to use their creativity..
I will definitely inspire you!
