Re: [teacherartexchange] Umbrellas In Bryce Canyon:

After I began the painting "Umbrellas at Bryce Canyon" it began to
bring back some early art historical images to mind. C W Mc Waid (my
Jr High art teacher) showed us the image by Van Gogh and told us that
he used a japanese print as a reference. Strange how these things
connect over all these years. Van Gogh was copying a woodcut by
Utagawa Hiroshige - at first I assumed it was Hokusai but now I know.
It's an important point to realize that what art teachers expose their
students stick with them for a lifetime.
