Inspiration :: It is an untroubled state of mind. Of course, we know that an untroubled state of mind cannot last, so we say that inspiration comes and goes, but it is there all the time waiting for us to be untroubled again. We can therefore say that it is pervasive.
— Agnes Martin (March 22, 1912–December 16, 2004) Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances by Arne Glimcher (20th Century Living Masters)

This book seems to be a very interesting read for anyone that is interested in art, art studios and art friends. I think that I will buy it — whoa I just saw the price. No wonder people are saying that it is wonderful — it is quite expensive.

Small dried myosotis flowers in a grunge-like presentation. This Moleskine Sketchbook paper is not made for watercolours as it is a very grunge-like effect… sometimes happily, and sometimes not. I guess that flowers are not very grungeable -) For the hundredth time, I should have taken a picture “before” painting it in… and I would have had a reasonable drawing, and if the results had been good with the watercolours, I would have had a 2 for one -)

Paper: Moleskine Sketchbook
Watercolours: Hansa Medium, Violet & Serpentine Green
Fountain Pen: Pilot Prera F
Location: Rigaud, Québec, Canada

    You piqued my interest on the book you referred to but the link did not work for me. Could you repost the link or identify the title please?
