Original "Matisse Reverie"

A few years back I visited the National Gallery in Washington DC. I went there on a trip by myself to take my mind off a disintegrating relationship. Art heals! (Especially a light-hearted Matisse) I just finished this today...

A little background - as Matisse got older, he was confined to his bed much of the time. But his creative energy was still strong, so he cut out shapes from colorful paper, and 'painted' in a whole new way!

Very intersting, Rachel. I didn't now that about Matisse. Or that you could reproduce one so beautifully.
