Happy New Year

Happy 2015 to all! I am in the middle of reading “The Unknown Matisse”, by Hilary Spurling- a biography of the early years of Henri Matisse. A genius of color, pattern and composition. I have always loved Matisse, but to follow his life from birth to a young artist is so revealing, so personal- and so motivating. He grew up in a textile town in France, surrounded by fabrics and jacquards and weavings- later by textiles and rugs of the Middle East and Africa- and found true joy in their patterns and colors. His life and his vast body of work are inspirations for me, for the coming year.
