Pencil and paper

Henri Matisse was an amazing artist.

He could create emotional pieces of art with nothing more than a pencil and a bit of paper. Some of his well-renowned work is no bigger than a post-it note, and contains no more than ten or twelve strokes.

To make great art, maybe sometimes all we need to do is grab a pencil and a scrap of paper — and draw.
