Art and Change

I read this quote this morning in an L. A. Times article about a violin teacher in Beverly Hills teaching a student via Skype in Erbil, Iraq.

"Art never stopped a cannot change events. But it can change people."

Leonard Bernstein


Here is a small art lesson for you. I set up this still life last Thursday for my art class. It had a lemon instead of the squash but the lemon got used for last night's chicken dinner.


Here is the drawing I did. You can trace it, copy it or toss it.


I started the painting by drawing with watercolor colored pencils, then added more colors with my watercolor paints.

Change is my new focus. I am trying to change some of my habits and attitudes that seem to be getting in my way. Autumn always seems like a good time for new changes.
