I watched the forger's masterclass on Andre Derain, one of the fauvists, then googled fauvists and a new appreciation for the style grew in me.
We had snow last week, but not enough to put out wildfires so our air quality is awful. Our weather can go from 90 to 25 in one day, then back again. Such extremes led me to feel at home with the fauvists this week. I saw exhibits of their school of work at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC... and thought I did not like them. But look...
bold , unusual color forming lines to
represent reality. It's hard with watercolor to capture the intensity
but as I sat at my computer, and looked at the view out the back doors...

Painting makes me happy... learning makes me happy too... here's a quote for you
quote: by Clara Schumann, She said, "My imagination can picture no fairer happiness than to continue living for art."
