This is the first of my 2015 works inspired by the paintings of Henri Matisse. I was so inspired by his use of light, form and color, I felt a real sense of calm while creating. This work is small, yet full of happiness and light. Though clearly an abstract piece, there are such elements here with strong ties landscape: flowers, trees, leaves. Very peaceful, yet alive. This work is created on canvas using acrylic, pastel, oil pen and charcoal. I continue to explore color and light as it pushes me further daily. This work consists of one panel, measuring 24x20". It has gallery wrapped, painted sides and is ready to hang.
