She Dreams In Color

It is MAY! And this is my first finished portrait for the month.

She Dreams In Color – 9 x 12 inch acrylic on stretched canvas (SOLD, thank you!)

When I see this sweet girl, I think of Matisse and his colorful portraits of women. He may have been subconsciously in my thoughts as I painted this one. I didn’t have much of a plan when I started…I just knew I wanted (needed!) to play with color.

I suppose she is one more to add to my continuing Dream series I started years ago. She is now varnished and ready for a new home. You will find her in my ArtcyLucy Etsy shop.

What I dream of is an art of balance,

of purity and serenity devoid of troubling

or depressing subject matter –

a soothing, calming influence on the mind,

rather like a good armchair

which provides relaxation

from physical fatigue.

~ Henri Matisse
