I Paint Objects as I Think Them

"I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them." -Pablo Picasso

So says Didi Menendez's art blog.

In addition to being a prolific publisher, my friend Didi is a prolific painter who uses an unusual palette and a dash of cocked perspective to create her striking acrylic and oil works. Her current occupation is with poets, and she started a blog to showcase the growing series she began in November 2007.

Even though I'm not a real poet, Didi chose to paint me. (Thank you for the compliment!) The small preview of the oil portrait (check out the texture of the hair) links to the blog, AmericanPoets.Blogspot.com.
