When all else fails.....copy an artist you admire.

I discovered a new to me artist named Jan Mankes, a Dutch painter who died of tuberculosis at only 30 years of age.  I'm always saddened when I discover someone I admire who died young.  How many artists are this accomplished at thirty?  His appealing soft edged style would have been wonderful to watch as it matured.
