Masters Study – Edward Hopper’s Room in New York Crop

“Excellence is not an act but a habit. The things you do the most are the things you will do the best.”
– Marva Collins

Masters Study – Edward Hopper’s Room in New York Crop
2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

I fell in love with Edward Hopper, while doing this Masters exchange.  His work looked so easy to do and it was soooo hard.  I think it is amazing.   He wasn’t readily accepted by his peers early on, but stuck to his guns and I’m glad he did!  (to the best of my understanding)  :)
Hopper’s original painting is here.

I’m off to Muskogee to fly!  **wave**

About Marva Collins

“American educator Marva Collins pioneered progressive education for disadvantaged children. She was born in Alabama in 1936 and in her 20′s moved to Chicago, where she founded a school for children who were at risk. After one year, every child tested at least five grades higher. Many public schools have successfully implemented her methods. She has appeared on 60 Minutes and Good Morning America and she recieved the National Humanities Medal from President Bush in 2004. She believes every child is a winner until someone convinces him or her too thoroughly otherwise.”  (I like that!)
