The Dummies Guide to Picasso

I paint the way some people write their autobiography…. I have less and less time and yet I have more and more to say, and what I have to say is, increasingly, something about the movement of my thought.

—Pablo Picasso

Alright, alright I know he’s good. I’ll give him a try. It’s just that every Picasso book is sooooo big. Can’t someone make “The Dummies Guide to Picasso”.

This quote sums it up -he has so much to say. Idris Murphy told me….”Look at Picasso….the master of composition…”  Michael Ambriano gave me a wonderful collection of plates/illustrations. The AGNSW is bringing out a collection for me and opening coincidentally while I am in Sydney.  It’s making my art head hurt because I know there is too much information and too little time. What more can he do? Just look at this image from a young child referencing Picasso. That’s a look of artistic desperation.  Perhaps stumbling across the quote at the top of this page this morning.

“I have less and less time and more and more to blog increasingly about what I am not doing. “
