Sculpture and Matisse

It takes courage to bloom where you are planted.
"The artist must summon all his energy,

his sincerity, and the greatest modesty

in order to shatter the old cliches

that come so easily to hand while working,

which can suffocate the little flower that does not come,


the way one expects."

A wonderful quote by Henri Matisse, from the book, Wabi Sabi The Art Of Everyday Life by Diane Durston.
