Ravished by Matisse
Art within Art Series
11 x 14 inches
Interior Oil Painting on Canvas
I know I just painted a Matisse for my Art within Art Series but his work fits so well with what
I am doing with this series that I decided that there will be several renditions from certain artists that I
feel are great for this series such as Matisse, Picasso and Kandinsky.
I love all the brilliant colors and shapes these artists use in their works.
The flooring is a small clip from one of Matisses paintings as well as the wall, the wall painting, the flowers, table top and of course the painting on the table is Matisse. I wanted to use a cat in this composition so in my searches did find that Matisse did a cat painting. I thought it was so funny so I added it for humor in the right lower corner. His imagination and use of color and cutout shapes always amazed me. Nothing ever seems in proportion yet is so appealing and fun to paint.Enjoy
