I read a thought provoking book someone gave me. It is a New York Times Bestseller titled STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST by Austin Kleon. It makes me think about years ago when I gave a demo to Mid-Southern Watercolorist in Little Rock. I was talking about how people take a workshop from someone they admire and then want to paint like them. I used a parallel of a new carpenter wanting to create something like a master carpenter they admired. I said that even if they could do it then people would think it was done by the master carpenter. Over the years I have seen art work and I believe I knew who they had taken a workshop from. I think now that that is OK, but the more we study many other artists we admire than we hopefully begin to express things in our own way. It is a blessing to continue to learn.
