“Start painting what you love and don’t worry about painting to make money or please others. Paint like the bills and loans don’t matter. Paint without fear but with passion for crying out loud, you only live once.”
Copying the masters is a common way for artists to learn, but this was a new and fantastic experience for me. I tried one of my favorites, “Sunflowers in the Windstorm” by Emil Nolde at the Columbus Museum of Art.
