Drawing while eating in the hospital cafeteria / A different way of thinking

"The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same thinking that created them."

-- Albert Einstein

Interesting to try to draw an oil painting with pencil on paper. "Aguas Verdes" is a large diptych (53" x 68") painted in oil on linen by Caryn Friedlander. It hangs in the St. Joseph Medical Center cafeteria in Bellingham, Washington, and is a renewing presence in a hospital setting.

Remember, you need your eyes to listen to Bob Dylan :-)

Oops, that was supposed to say "ears" (not eyes) because that second one reminds me of a Van Gogh.

Loren -- Both versions work for me (-:

I do need my eyes to listen to Bob Dylan, and Yoko Ono once said, "Listen to these pictures."

Now that you mention it, the painting is like Van Gogh's drawings and paintings. I liked it but didn't know why.

I love the way you draw your world in the moment.

I like Loren's comment about eyes too!

Yes, I agree, the Friedlander is very Van Gogh - the swirls and the colours, the whole spirit of the thing.

The Einstein quote made me think of Dylan's 'Gonna change my way of thinking'.
