Project #2-Louisiana Art Workshop-Picasso's Doves of Peace.

 Arriving sky
 Clay doves made quickly, Picasso style.
  Clay dove on right made with eyes closed in one minute. 

I produced about 30 drawings, one painting, and three sculptures of Doves last night in 2 1/2 hours. That includes lecture time. We were busy. They are definitely not masterpieces. 

We learned that Picasso produced seven works of art a day! He used the symbol of the dove of peace throughout his life starting when he was eight years old. His father kept doves and Picasso often kept them himself throughout his life. I also learned that he was a member of the communist party, but the communists did not appreciate his art, long story short- they kept him as a member because he was so famous. Hmm.
