Rene Magritte is well known for his surrealist paintings. More specifically, he is known for putting familiar objects in unfamiliar places. We looked at many of his paintings and talked about the unusual placement of things. He painted on bottles when he couldn't buy canvas. Today there is one of his landscapes painted on a wine bottle for sale for over $700 ,000. We all agreed that if there is no canvas around, we can probably find something that might normally go in the trash, that we could use for a creative backdrop for a new painting!
