(Almost) Wordless Wednesday (The Art Gallery Edition)

I saw this sketch by Matisse when I decided to pass a free hour in a small art gallery. I was struck by its elegance, but became even more engrossed after reading that Matisse used only 15 charcoal strokes. (Yes, I counted the lines to confirm.)

How talented to be able to express so much with so little.

    reminds me of the 6 word memoirs too.

    it takes such talent to produce greatness with so little.

    God gifts such wonderful gifts of talent. Back when I used to draw, I did good, but I had to work really hard to be good at it. It amazes me what beautiful works of art people can put out so effortlessly.
