Artist's Traits Widget

Matisse Seeing
8" x 7"
Casey Klahn

I am gratified by the response that the Artist's Traits series has generated. Certainly I am impoverished in the trait department, and there is no doubt that I need this goals-study more than any. Your readership, comments, links and encouragements are a great blessing to me, and I am thankful for that.

You may access the whole Artist's Traits series via this link.

most excellent cartoon of maitre matisse (with a hint of bart simpson?)

casey, thanks for this speculation.

maybe i think you might be interested in Antony Storr's book 'The Dynamics of Creation' which is a fairly even-headed analysis of character traits of creative types by this Oxford professor of pyschology.

when are we going to see somemore of your colorist pastels to brighten up our blogosphere? I like the spice of modernism too, for those who do not want minaturist still lives painted in apseudo-baroque style.

c'est la vie

Soon, and thanks for asking.

Love the drawing, and love your work! Wish you offered more workshops, or maybe online workshops? I'm a gouache painter, but your use of color strikes me to my core. Blessings! Joanie
