Grandmother's Sofa (30"x40")Sold
One of my hugest thrills was a weekend in New York City where I went to see an exhibit of my favourite artist Matisse. I wish I had known him. Wish I had been born in a different time and was able to study under him. What a rush that would have been.
My friend gave me a sofa that was her grandmother's. I have had it for many years now and kept thinking... "this is like the Sofa in Spanish Still Life by Matisse." I decided I would set up a similar vignette to his painting. I lost all track of time.. stayed up all night and well into the next day... Just couldn't stop painting. I happened to have a patterned blanket which I have used in other paintings and just went wild.
