Julienne – 5 x 7 inch gouache painting on Ampersand Gessobord  

 I am still working through some assignments from my online class. We were asked to see how Matisse’ paintings could influence our own work, in paint. Well, I fell in love with his portrait paintings about 2 1/2 years ago. Since then, I have tried to incorporate his use of color and loose brush strokes in a series of small 5 x 7  inch paintings I called “Ladies of Fashion”. This one, fits right in with those. Love the colors, her moody look, and of course, the fantastic hat!  

Sold, thank you!   Julienne” is now available in my online art shop, as well as the rest of my “Ladies of Fashion” paintings that are still available. I hope you’ll take a look.

“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity…” ~ Henri Matisse
