Conversation

I admire how Matisse incorporated patterns, lines, and shapes into wonderful portrait studies. I have been lucky enough to see his work at MOMA in New York and at the Denver Art Museum. 

I have never been good at sitting in a meeting and paying attention without sketching at the same time. One day when I was sketching while I was talking to a group of friends, I started seeing their clothes and the surrounding background as a study of patterns. “Conversation” is the result of celebrating Matisse’s legacy and honoring him by incorporating friends, conversation, line, and patterns into one piece of art.       $1,200
