The Landscapes Gallery I
You can't succeed beyond your wildest expectations unless you begin with some wild expectations. (Anonymous)
I must go down to the seas again,
for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that
may not be denied.
II Landscapes of Puerto Rico
A certain blue enters your soul. A certain red has an effect on your blood-pressure. (Henri Matisse)
Puerto Rican Parrots in Rainforest
Never let go of the fiery sadness called desire. (Matsuo Basho)
III Landscapes of Greece
The minute I sat in
front of a canvas, I was happy.
Because it was a world, and I could do as I like in it.
Temple of Poseidon, Cap Sounion
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web. (Pablo Picasso)
IV The Sunset Collection
After a thousand watercolors you will find you have fallen in love with paper and paint. (Rex Brandt)
Trees at Sunset
Iím more myself when Iím painting than I could possibly be when doing anything else. (Keith Jacobshagen)
