A Matisse for My Birthday

20190710_064812.jpgYesterday I celebrated my birthday by painting a beautiful Matisse painting with the Art Camp Kids.  This is “Still Life, Bouquet of Dahlias and White Book by Henri Matisse from  1923.   This week we are studying Monet, Matisse and Van Gogh and since Matisse is my favorite we did one of his.  They did amazing work as we did a little large canvas.  Nice job everyone!!!

I got to spend a few hours at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City yesterday.

I love seeing the size of paintings that we see in books and then realize how large…or small they really are.

20170726_203440We love Matisse!  The Art Campers loved painting “Girl in the Purple Coat” yesterday.  It was quite a challenge to do it in just 3 hours but these young painters were diligent and buckled down and got it finished.  And boy, didn’t they do an excellent job?!  Great work girls!

One of the most striking things at the Matisse in the Studio exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston was the fabrics he used in his works.

He had some rich textiles with interesting shapes and colors that he used as backdrops and drapes in many of his paintings.

Sometimes he just used the shapes and designs and changed up the colors to suit his need.

It was fascinating to see them side by side with the paintings.  This may be the best exhibit I have ever visited.

It was just amazing!  I have so many more photos but I think with the ones posted earlier this week as well as the ones today you have gotten a good idea of what the exhibit was about and how Matisse went about his process.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

What struck me most as I saw the Matisse in The Studio exhibit is how he used his collection of objects time and time again in his paintings.  He had a group of items that were special to him and often put them in his still-life set-ups.  In this series today you will see his chocolate pots.
