ROCKING THE BOAT

My greatest fear...

Henri Matisse's painting "Le Bateau" (The Boat). On October 18th, 1961 it was hung in the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. Forty-seven days later Henri's son demanded it be taken down for it was on display upside down.

I'M DOING MY PART!

"Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art."  ~Neil Gaiman

Well...I've got the 'mistake' part down!
