In looking at a lot of art over the last week on the web and in magazines I am now thoroughly convinced that anyone can learn to draw and paint. There are so many artists doing the same thing and so few doing anything truly creative. Not to continue the ever present question of what makes art and is technical ability the same as being artistic because I think both expressions are valid, but how often do you see a painting and it really sits with you? You cannot get it out of your mind....ever. Not enough, I say...... I would like every person I know to name one work of art that impacted them permanently.
