Matisse and Me

sunshine&honeysuckleThis is a self-portrait, that may or may not be finished. The colors are inspired by Matisse, and this piece is nearly a homage to that great painter of color. I say almost, because it has other themes too. It is framed by music art, and by the art of political posters, in the posture of the figure. The figure is almost confrontational, fierce (not unlike me, sometimes). The beautiful patches of light through the honeysuckle captivated me, and burn off the skin. They show on the outside what is within.

More to do perhaps, but I love it so far.

    This is fantastic! I am fascinated by the tension between the shadows which suggest something hidden, and the posture which is so forward. I can’t wait to see the finished work!
