1316 Window without Forget-Me-Nots

sold We painted like Matisse this month for the GJWP Challenge. The thing about painting like someone else is I don't think like anyone else - so, this is quite the challenge. In the case of Matisse, regrettably, I don't know too much about him, as in why he did what he did. As a result, this painting is a response to looking at the common markings in his interiors and implementing them in my own painting. Those are my chairs, my window, my view, my rug, put all together with his dark lines, color palette and his composition.  This painting is directly based on Matisse's Window with Forget-Me-Nots - I guess I would classify this as an appropriation. Happy 2013!!! 6" x 6", acrylic
