Still Life & Interior Series Original Oil Paintings

Coffee in Bed (with Henri Matisse) : I can explain.  For years, people have been telling me I paint like Matisse. And all this time, I thought I was channeling Vincent van Gogh! So finally, I read Hillary Spurling's excellent book,"The Unknown Matisse". I was so inspired! I learned that he grew up in a Belgian town that figured out that it would specialize in the production of luxury textiles and rugs, and it was the love of textiles that informed so many of his paintings. So I painted this, in his honor. Oil on panel 14" x 18".
