"Man needs color to live; it's just as necessary an element as fire and water."
Matisse is one of my favorite inspirations and I consider him one of the greats in the fauvism movement. Fauvism takes a leap beyond impressionsm into almost abstraction, but not quite. I just love the bright colors and energy of this style and it lends itself well to palette knife work. Brilliant!
This painting would make a fantastic gift for the holidays!
