Happy Birthday: Myrna Bàez

Myrna Bàez was a Puerto Rican painter and printmaker born on August 18th.

"I do not want to do landscapes for tourists nor make pictures of the sentimental, nostalgic or folkloric things that people in this country suffer from due to a lack of identity. I am using landscape because I am interested in form, because I'm interested in color, because I'm interested in the place...I'm interested in expressing: light--that which surrounds us, the shapes that have formed me, that have made me and moved me." ~Myrna Bàez
