Napping at a Matisse Place
Art within Art
11 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas
This was such a fun painting. Just browsing through all the Matisse paintings to come up with one
design idea brings so much joy. This painting is a room full of Matisse. It is a combination of 6 Matisse works. The flooring is a design that he uses in many of his pieces, the table setting and wall paper is from two others as well as the little sleeping lady from yet another and of course the three paintings are small renditions of his works. I never really know where they are going until I start sketching elements for all the different paintings and it starts coming together....with a lot of erasing!
I don't think I would be sleeping if I was in a room full of Matisse.... Napping at a Matisee Place was
a fun place to be!
