Henri Matisse

Here is a shot of domestic shot of color  for you  via Henri Matisse. All this saturation is like sitting in front of a bowl full of candy. All the interiors have some sort of life or living presence to them. What a freeing way to see, think and paint. He used “intense color as a way of representing light and space.”   The color was not in the natural world of the spaces he painted, he used it to evoke a mood. If you are a big fan of his work  that it might explain why you like it. He was in control of the mood he expressed with the simplified shapes and colors he choose.

It you like the idea of that you might also like the interior design blog, The Jungalow, by Justina Blakney who recently wrote The New Bohemians. I feel like she should be sitting in or for one of his paintings. #ifyoulikethisyoumightlikethat How fun is that?
