Modigliani’s Muse

I was visiting blogs trying to catch up and was lead to another Modigliani lover. I just love the graceful lines of his portraits. Some are much more modern looking than I usually like, but the fluid lines always make me stop and take a closer look.

I guess that is what art does, it makes one stop and take a closer look. What type of art makes this happen for each of us individually can be completely different. That is what’s so wonderful about art, there is something for everyone.

This is a little journal page I did last night. I cannot even begin to tell you how lovely it was to start out a bit stressed from the day and finish 20 minutes later in a totally different frame of mind. A simple sketch, some paint and a pencil. The best therapy for stress there is in my book.
