. . . pondering picasso

Pablo Picasso has been one of my favorite artists  ever since I was a child. I distinctively remember the first time I saw his Petite Fleurs (below) when I was 7 years old and how wildly I reacted to it! In the countless art classes I took all through high school and college he was always my greatest inspiration ~ as he seemed to be able to work in every medium while maintaining his signature style. So recently when I came across this quote by him, "Good artists copy, great artists steal" it stuck in my mind, because I guess its kind of fun to wonder exactly what he meant by this. What's your interpretation?!
