#Friday in the #ArtStudio with #SalvadorDali

Happy Youth Art Month: Fun Art Fact of the Day: Salvador Dali believed he was his dead brother’s reincarnation. There is also a portrait or a silhouette of Dali in every one of his paintings. He produced over 1500 paintings, many of them regarded as masterpieces, and pretty much single handily kept the mainstream surrealist movement alive. http://thedali.org/
