"Sr. Alcaraz told me to leave my artist's Prismacolors in the U.S. when I went to study with him.
He discovered I'd taken them to his home in Spain. ASAP, he confiscated them as if contraband
and hid them. I found them and secretly placed them in an elephant vase. Then, I painted them!
(In a million years you'd never guess what happened next!?! No, I will not give a hint.)
Be an Artist in Life (Above) very quickly became the single most popular painting
with every audience. That really excited me. So, I shared the story everywhere.
My teacher taught me to plant [paint] a 'happy' patch of grass strategically and 'finish'
my paintings with panache, using unusual, unnatural colours, because they feel right.
One day, a good-natured shepherd pointed to a patch of grass in one of my paintings
and waggled his finger, '¡No está allí!' ('It's not there!') he admonished, but he loved it.
(Wait until he sees the 'happy little' mountain I painted in his beloved village!)
My wise ol' teacher had taught me to make my 'pretty' paintings beautiful.
If I can do it, any pro or budding artist can do it too, but first learn to draw well.
Mastering the fundamentals was fundamental for the world's greatest artists of all time.
Bird, Messi, Jordan, Palmer, Cambiaso, … every world #1 athlete will tell you the same.
I'm guessing Zuckerberg, Gates, and Buffett would agree."
