Painting of the Month
'Red Landscape' Oil on Canvas 36" x 48" © Patrick Howe
About: In this painting I used small choppy brushstrokes. This type of
stroke was first explored by the Impressionists and artist Paul Cezanne,
and was also a source of irritation to the academic traditionalists of the
time who believed that brushstrokes should never show in a work of art.
I call this stroke the 'chop stroke' and use it often in teaching. It creates
an energetic, and shimmering quality. Cezanne is considered the father
of modern art because so many art movements sprang out of his painting
style. His paintings often look slightly 'sculptured' which was a quality that
later inspired Cubism. Here is one of my favorite Cezanne quotes: "It took
me 40 years to figure out that painting was not sculpture."

Art Movie Review
First the warning: this is a sentimental Hallmark formula-style movie.
If you can endure that part, then this movie is about a young man who
wants to be an artist and seeks the mentorship of an old, bitter, always
drunk, use-to-be-famous master painter. (Note to my students: this is
not a movie about me). It contains some very funny scenes and some
insightful comments about art. Hallmark aside, I rate this movie with
four tubes of Cadmium Yellow Deep.
Famous Artist Saying
from my Art And Awakening website
"Isn't the ultimate desire of human beings to perceive an
surpasses us yet is within us, to participate in that order?" -Paul Klee
"Ancient Sounds" by Paul Klee
