Start by sketching a thumbnail size rectangle. A rough one as shown here on the right.

Rene Magritte, The Great SurrealistRene Magritte, The Great Surrealist

René Magritte was born in Lessines, in the province of Hainaut, Belgium, in 1898. He was the son of Léopold Magritte, a tailor and textile merchantwho was a milliner before she got married.

He began lessons in drawing in 1910. 

Magritte mother committed suicide and he was present when her body was retrieved from the water, but recent research has discredited this story.


When his mother was found, her dress was covering her face, an image that has been suggested as the source of several of Magritte's paintings.

Abstract Art and Drawing is Gaining in Popularity

Have you ever tried your hand at drawing abstract shapes and forms? It is not as easy as it looks especially if you are only using a pencil. To fill in masses of shapes you need charcoal and crayons.

Also, as with other genres, you do need to consider how you are going to draw your visitors into your drawing. Apply the rule of thirds - I've mentioned this a few times where you guide your viewer into your picture in stages. It is a skill, and you should know it.

Follow along on this blog - there's always tips you can use.

Humor is really the only effective medicine you can find!

Rich dad, Poor Dad, I don’t think it matters a hill of beans. Who your dad is and is not very relevant in today’s world. Wealth is where you find it. You can make a fortune right now in internet marketing or selling beans, or amassing bucks by playing crap shoots in Vegas!

The choice is yours - but hey, stick to drawing or do something you love!

The big bucks are found in entertaining people and making them laugh usually with below the belt crap. Look at the hoops you have to jump through to get the girl of your dreams.

You soon forget about your dreams and of buried treasure to go to work.  Then one day you come home to find that your dream girl has run off with your best friend.  A note attached to the front door saying that you were not fun anymore.

Many people would think it's a tragedy and would feel pity. But, the man in question I know very well and he laughed and thought it was the funniest joke in the world. In that instant of enlightenment hit him, right between the eyes.

You can still find your place in the sun if you would but open your eyes and use the gifts the creator has endowed you with.   Do you really need a cell phone? Are you better off with the Internet? Of course you are not!

You don’t have to play the Game at all. And you'll win on your terms.
