George Shipperley in The Pastel Journal

Better late than never,
I finally found this article
about George Shipperley
in the February, 2007 edition
of "The Pastel Journal"

And here's some quotes:

"The best thing about a painting is sometimes its imperfection.
Imperfection carries the beauty, the individuality. It's expressive"

"intelligence gets in the way of emotion. It's analytical, while emotional impulses aren't"

"I often tell my students that when they start subtracting rather than adding to their work, they are thinking as an artist should"

"as Renoir once said, I want to paint beautiful pictures,
because there is so much in life that is not beautiful"
