Art Influences: Edouard Manet

People have asked which artists inspired my work the most. Having painted for over 60 years, the people you most admire and are influenced by changes. However, there are always some artists that you always their work. I would say that Edouard Manet is my favorite of a period
even though I admire Claude Monet’s works. I learned a lot from Manet by studying his pictures
in books. His hand to eye coordination is incredible. He sees something and can put it
down in a simple fashion. His oils are fantastic but equally impressive are his pastel sketches and drawings.
