it’s gonna be a good day

I’m all about self fulfilling prophecies.  Might as well start off with one of my favorite painters.

Henri Matisse, Bonheur de Vivre, (1905-06).

“There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.”

Matisse

    matisse is one of my faves as well. and indeed the hardest part about being an artist is forgetting – truly inspirational art arises perhaps from the senses and less from the memory.
