“My 5-year-old could paint that!”

Yes! I would love to paint with that kind of joy and unselfconsciousness. 

I think that’s what Picasso meant when he said, “it took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

Today I experimented with a paintbrush duct-taped to a yardstick. And I painted with my left hand. It felt good to feel awkward and a little out of control.  I liked the looseness of the line, but it still felt a little self-conscious. Tomorrow, I’ll try it blindfolded!
