A Love Note. I just wanted to pop in and send some love. Yep! It was Love Day yesterday and I hope everyone is feeling lot's of love, whether you celebrate the day or not.
I was also wondering if all the art lovers got to see the exhibition at the NSW Art Gallery, Matisse: Life & Spirit? I loved it so much that I went twice, it was so beautifully curated and Matisse was such an inspiration. Prior to the exhibition I didn't know a lot about Henri Matisse, but what I saw in his simple sketches and more colourful oil work was that art doesn't have to be complicated to be beautiful and he reenergised my love of the simple line, especially for female faces. It kinda' validated my simple abstract portraits I create.
So look out for some new art work coming from the studio, palms and goddesses are back on the easel.
Have a beautiful week and I would love to know if your visit to Matisse was as successful as mine or maybe you had different thoughts on the exhibition!
