Hey, I know that image ~ lol ~ glad you like my 'Picasso'-centric blog, Spirit Walker!

And yes, it's quite interesting as I detailed in my latest article on Norval Morrisseau on the blog how there are similarities.

Being 'a prolific artist' sure is one of such similar traits.

Namaste, A Lee

I like the quote, give me a museum and I will fill it. One day we will all witness a great museum built for this Master of the North. One day, but not yet.

I don't know from who I got it, but a Morrisseau Museum was Norval's wish. But I agree with "anonymous" it will take some time before Canada will realize the importance of that (for Canada), and there are some other things to clarify first.
