Pablo Ruiz Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor. He is considered one of the greatest artists of the 20[SUP]th[/SUP] century. He is best known as the co-founder of cubism. A work of art is cubist when the artist opts to break up objects and re-assemble them in abstract and geometric form. Simple English Wikipedia

http://www.pablopicasso.org/ is an interesting site about Pablo Picasso Paintings, Quotes and Biography.

Be inspired by the different periods of art work by Pablo Picasso such as The Blue Period, The Rose Period, African Influence, Cubism, Surrealism and Realism; or you may use your favorite quote or use one of the following:

Youth has no age.

Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.

It takes a long time to become young.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun.

To draw you must close your eyes and sing.

Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.

Everything you can imagine is real.

I paint things as I think of them, not as I see them.

Love is the greatest refreshment in life.

I’d like to live as a poor man with lots of money.

We are all born children—the trick is remaining one.

Music and art are the guiding lights of the world.

Action is the foundational key to all success.

Paradise is to love many things with a passion.

You don’t make art, you find it.

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.

Please upload your pages to the monthly Challenges gallery and post a link back to this thread.

I am looking forward to seeing your pages.

Here is my blue period page using the quote:
Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun. Pablo Picasso

Thanks for the challenge Grace! Picasso isn't my favorite artist, however I was very impressed of his oeuvre Guernica. I have seen it twice, the first time in the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the second time in Madrid, in the Museo Reina Sofia and a reproduction of it (much smaller) is hanging here in my working room. Love his blue and rose period.
