This was a fun painting because I loved the subject - a pear on a plate set on the back of my Matisse book. I even included the bar code as a spot of color. It was a wonderful exercise to follow the lines of these dancing figures by Matisse.


  1. I love this painting!! I always love your vibrant, cheerful colors!! You really made the Matisse dance!

  2. I love this painting.
    Funny story. I was out painting with the Naples Outdoor group Thursday and happened to pull up behind a Mass plate. When she got out I asked "where in Massachusetts?".
    She said, "Duxbury, but I used to live in Marshfield."
    Small world ;)

  3. Lovely painting Marie!! I just posted a portrait on my blog and I would be honored if you looked at it when you have a spare moment:)


Thanks for commenting on my art! Marie
