Matisse "Woman In Blue"

Last night some local artists got together and talked painting and artists' legal matters. Surprisingly, two of us used to practice law but now paint. It was lots of fun!

I'm still reading Hilary Spurling's Matisse bio, "Matisse The Master," and probably will be for a while. So today's photo of the day is another Henri Matisse painting from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this one titled "Woman In Blue" and painted in 1937. I've seen it many times, and the color must have faded, as it looks like a woman in gray to me.

That's the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's Unique Artistic Idea, his innovative 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at Artist Jay Rolfe uses vibrant color, 3-D, recognizable shape, and huge size to reveal beauty, touch emotion in a positive way, and create an Uplifting Conversation Piece.
