Art Washes Away … the Dust of Everyday Life. Picasso

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Picasso

I completely agree.
It is easy, in everyday life, to get completely swamped by the numerous things we are supposed to do in a day. But if you take just a couple of minutes and sit down in front of a favorite piece of art, you can often clear your mind. Color can brighten a gloomy day, abstract images can be calming or provoking, art can pique your interest and make you wonder what the artist’s inspiration was. Art can remind you of the natural wonder of nature or just relax your mind as you focus on the beauty of a simple line.

So yes, I agree with Picasso that art can wash away from the soul the dust of everyday life. Its ironic really, considering that many of my paintings are based around the dusty dry season in Africa!

Until next time…
