Florida Art Walks ~ Inspired by Art

“I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.” Picasso

To know me is to know what a great influence ART has over me. I need it as much as clean air and water to survive. It feeds my soul in a way that gives me inspiration, motivation and above all happiness.

One of my favorite ways to experience art is by going on Art Walks. Another wonderful benefit of living in culturally rich South Florida.

“The soul of art is inspiration.” Ginia A. Davis

“What is real is not the external form, but the essence of things for it is impossible for anyone to express anything essentially real by imitating its exterior surface.”  Constantin Brancusi
