Re: Project Discussion: Painting the Masters ATC Trade

I will have to look into that. Never heard of that. Only that modern “Big Eyes” painter they made the movie about.
We were just told in art history lessons that women only painted if they were from affluent homes where young ladies would be expected to learn piano, needlepoint,or paint. Female artists were not allowed in art schools because of the sense of propriety and nudity for life drawing. Also they would be unmarried and it would be seen as inappropriate, especially to their sensibilities, and surrounded by men, or married, with family/ household duties that should keep them home. Always wondered how much talent was out there that we never found out about. So much. It was feared as a bohemian lifestyle for a proper lady.
The impossible is only the untried...
True failure is never even trying...
Inevitably some attempts will end up in the trash. Continue anyway. Perseverance can trump undeveloped, procrastinating, or fearful talent.
