Modern art is what happens when painters stop looking at girls and persuade themselves that they have a better idea. ~John Anthony Ciardi
I saw this quote today and it made me laugh.
What idea could possibly be better than “girls”?
So many directions to go with this, so little time!
Then I thought about it a little more and wondered if Mr.Ciardi would appreciate this painting as “the missing link” between what is considered “modern” and what is not.
Either way my sweet subject has a clear point of view on the matter. But whatever it is, for some reason it is coming out backwards. But that’s ok – you can look at the girl if you want to.
