“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
–Henry Ward Beecher
print: Flowers in the Air
This painting reminds me of Dr. Seuss: how tall, lanky and colorful the trees and plants were in his books. Sometimes they were fluffy or crooked. They withstood the laws of gravity and physics. I always admired his creativity and his ability to bring life to something so fictitious. Never with my own eyes have I seen candy-striped trees or the ‘Whos’ down in ‘Whoville’ but it certainly felt real to me as a child.
Dr. Seuss built his own world with his stories that will bring joy to many generations to come – as I’m sure is every artist’s intention. I hope everyone knows it isn’t always about coloring inside the lines; it’s about your own creation -of nature or not- facilitating beauty and happiness for someone else.
Create everyday 🙂
