“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
– Michelangelo Buonarroti
Fall Berries – Watercolor
As much as I like these fall colors, I’m ready for an explosion of beautiful fresh spring colors, aren’t you?
My thoughts go out to all the people in Japan, suffering from the effects of the recent tsunami. It’s headed toward Hawaii and the US west coast. I hope it loses it’s potency before then. That is just too scary to fully imagine.
About Michelangelo Buonarroti
Michelangelo Buonarotti, the Renaissance sculptor and painter, is considered one of the world’s greatest artists. He was born in Tuscany in 1475. He apprenticed to a painter at age 13, infuriating his father, who considered art menial work. By age 25, he had sculpted one of his finest works, the Pietà, in St. Peter’s. Working alone, he took four years to paint more than 400 figures on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. He also designed St. Peter’s dome and is perhaps best known for his iconic statue of David. He died in 1564.
