Stack of Cups

“Attempt easy tasks as if they were difficult, and difficult as if they were easy; in the one case that confidence may not fall asleep, in the other that it may not be dismayed.”
– Baltasar Gracián y Morales

Stack of Cups – 6″ x 9″ Gouache on Art Spectrum Colourfix

I hosted the WDE at WetCanvas last weekend.  It was so much fun!  The two weekends per year that I host, the hubby leaves me alone to do all the art I want.  That is pure joy for me.  This is a stack of my office coffee cups.  I had a great time with this one.  There is still time to play.  Just go to:  All Media Art Events forum.

About Baltasar Gracián y Morales

Baltasar Gracián y Morales, the Jesuit scholar and moralist author, was the leading Spanish proponent of conceptism (conceptismo), a method of expressing ideas through puns, epigrams, and other verbal devices. He was born in 1601 in Aragon. The Jesuit leadership frowned on his oratorical style, which included reading a letter from Hell to his congregation. His best known books include The Art of Worldly Wisdom and The Hero, which repudiated Machiavelli. He died in 1658.
