Paul Klee and Ferdinand the Bull
by Steven McCabe
Ferdinand the Bull only wanted to smell the flowers.
My favourite book as a child. I found the story captivating and the ink drawings mesmerizing. I remember my mother in the sun-drenched living room where I would turn the pages over and over.
‘Fairy Tales’ by Paul Klee. Perhaps my favourite artist of all my favourites. Was Paul Klee so unlike Ferdinand? Flowers too cast shadows.
One of my favorite artists. The name “Klee” means “clover”. Ferdinand would like that 🙂
A wonderful piece of news! I had no idea. Yes Ferdinand would like that very much! Thank you.
Oh, I adore this. The bull on the hill and the blue feather flowers. Wonderful!
Thank you very much. Fun to do this work. ‘Blue feather flowers’ – nice phrase!
