Matisse and I

Paintings I did for CORE based off of Matisse paintings currently on display at the Art Institute of Chicago. All are acrylic on wood.
8" x 7.5"
12" x 12", has carved patterns and layered dried paint
4" x 4.5", has attatched shelf with small piece of plaster for a friend :)
8" x 10", carved patterns and layered dried paint.
Matisse's "Portrait of Yvonne Landsberg"
Matisse's "French window". Painting based on this one in previous post.
Matisse's "Portrait of an Italian Woman"

I have been loving doing work inspired by Matisse, while at the same time exploring new painting methods and ways of incorporating the actual physical canvas into the painting, and building off of it. And, working on wood is so wonderful, that I may very well never go back to canvas again.
