"It's easy to paint when you don't know how, and very difficult when you do." ~ Edgar Degas

Yellow House Mauve Sky


"Morris lacked any idea of what to do with his life.  His relatives were accountants, druggists, morticians, nothing suited him.  Worse, he lacked confidence.  As he often said, he was only a mouse.  

But he liked art, he could draw, and he loved color.  Yellow cornbread on a purple plate.  A red barn under an orange sky.  These made his eyes brighten and his whiskers stiffen.  Maybe he could be an artist."
