The Profound Nature of a Single Drawn Line

What most impresses me about Picasso’s etchings was his gift of expressing the features of a face or a body with utter simplicity.

Picasso could compose the silhouette of a face by using only a single drawn line.  Delicate, expressive eyes in 1 or 2 fluid lines.  Bushy tufts of hair with 3 or 4 strokes.  He had ability that was astonishing in its simplicity.  The culmination of skill and learned technique.

As it is with art, it is so with food.  The successful preparation of high-quality food into dishes of beauty, sustenance and nutrition is exactly the same.  The culmination of skill and learned technique.

So, indulge a couple of hours with Picasso’s etchings and lithographs at the Cincinnati Art Museum.  Feel inspired.  It’s time to garden.
