Moroccan Cafe. 1912-13.

This older, 40 minute video of Sean Scully's commentary on Henri Matisse is well worth seeing. His particular understanding of Matisse's time in Morocco provided brilliant insights for me. I have always been challenged by the paintings done in the North African country, such as Moroccan Café, which Scully takes apart in this video. Remember that Matisse's Blue Nudes were all generated by his North African experiences. Enjoy.

18 artists and I enjoyed painting with respect to one's individual voice and ideas in the historic La Conner, Washington area last week. I painted 4 demos and 1 or 2 resolutions of student works. The class was attentive and eager to learn, and I am grateful to Dakota for this first opportunity to teach at a national workshop center located right here in my home state.
My workshop schedule updates. I am dreaming of teaching in Provence, Germany and Italy in upcoming years, as well as NYC and many venues throughout the USA. Dates for those TBA.
