That's funny because, applied to poetry, it comes out the same. Many young poets imagine that they have the right to ignore the reader, and just write what they like.

You make clever choices as always. :-)

I love Klee. In fact, there's a big Klee exhibition at MoMA in Manhattan that I have to haul my lazy ass off to see.

Thanks for reminding me!

I love the quote .. intelligent and a statement that everyone should think about for any project not just painting.

Oh yes, I like this painter
I like his soft colours and how he used geometrical shapes
He painted a so sweet life
