Rama suggested awhile back that we feature a specific piece of art that we love or inspires us. For me it has always been this piece by Picasso. A big poster print of it hangs in my studio and I have been privileged to see it in person twice at the National Gallery in London.
I love it because the child feels delicate and vulnerable, while the colourful beach ball suggests play. It reminds me to look at things with the openness of a child and keep that sense of play when I’m creating.
I’m not sure what the real meaning of the painting in, but that is what I see.
This weekend why not take 10 minutes, or 30 minutes or a even whole hour to create something just for the fun of it? Do it just for you
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. – Picasso
