Ginseng on my right and a man. Picasso said to paint like a child takes a lifetime. We have images we see and we try to imitate them. We want to represent life how we think we know it. Naturally we are relatively delusional with our understandings.
You may ask yourself what is the point in art. It is a learning. Learning about life through a medium. Every artist wants to show a part of life whether it be a landscape or portrait or abstraction. To delve into the abstraction may take representation.
