Picasso in a Napkin

Imagine if there was a book written with our life in it. How many stories would you be able to tell?

 I had a great conversation with an Artist today as she was telling me about why and how she became an Artist. It reminded me so much of my story, that I couldn’t help it but admire her for being able to find her self and for following her passions.

I used to believe that life would be great after going to school, getting a job, having a family and all the other things that come with life. But I found myself horribly unhappy, which is when I realized something was missing after I had everything I thought I wanted. 

Why is it that the human being needs to go through life changes in order to mature and become more self aware! It is said that if a person is successful at something is because they have made more mistakes on it than others. Its ok to trip and fall, actually thats the only way we human beings learn. An interesting story about Picasso goes like this…

Picasso was in a cafe, and he started drawing on a Napkin. When he was getting ready to leave, an admirer approached  him and asked if he could have the Napkin.  Picasso said “sure, its $20,000”. The admirer was shocked: “How can you ask for so much? It took you a minute to draw this!” “No”, Picasso replied, “It took me 60 years”, so he placed the Napkin back in his pocket. 

A similar story ocurred with this painting. Although its a new style for me, I found myself completely seduced by doing a painting using nothing else other than my hands. And to my surprise, it came out amazing.
