What Pablo thought

Picasso brain flex
Value in fresh endeavors
All are beginners

Pablo Picasso said that every child is born an artist, the problem is how to remain one once we grow up. Something very primary clicked in me when I grasped my Crayola Oil Pastels on a September 2015 Sunday afternoon. I was at a drawing class at the Iowa Arboretum with Carla, a gentle, competent teacher. Although I sometimes say that I can hardly think without a pen in my hand, I haven’t considered drawing in years. My last art class was probably in junior high. But some part of me remembered enough to not be afraid.
