Muscular Colors

I have been having a hard time finding just the right painting, photo or picture for my inspiration. Something special for the basis of our challenge piece. I have been looking exhaustively at Klimt, Degas, Renoir, Klee, Cezanne to name a few. I liked the houses of Cezanne, but I could not find the series I loved so much two years ago. So I kept looking and looking and looking.  I even polled my interior designer daughter who informed me she does not deal with paintings and sofas, that is for the interior DECORATORS to do and huffed away. 

I knew that.....but I thought she would give me something since she designs modernistic interiors in old buildings.  Juxtaposition.  In moods too, I see.



All of a sudden I remembered this beauty was sitting on my table for a week or so. I can see a lot of potential here.


Hmmmm.

And you know what, I think I can handle four of him! LOL.


With a little manipulation I think he will work. Now to pull my suntan browns, warm sweet browns, and other muscular colors.

One reader noted on my blog.......Poor Frank!

glen:  now how did she know this is not a picture of him?
