Art Challenge "Picasso"


This week's inspiration is "Picasso". Pablo Ruiz Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor. As you can see through his work, he was a complex artist. His paintings ranged from geometric shape (cubism) to soft portrait like, to distorted. There is something for everyone. Picasso's art spanned over 7 decades. Can you imagine? He is known to be one of the most influential artists during the 20th century.
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 Ruiz Picasso
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. -Pablo Ruiz Picasso


So this week lets see which period of Picasso's life inspires you. You have until Sunday 12 noon EST to add your link here in the comments. Have fun!

Tammy, this is brilliant...his use of form and color is inspiration enough. His command of all styles is intimidating and challenging. ♥

This is fun! Through photo manipulation of color, I have paid homage to the "Blue" period, I hope (-: Link here:
