Feisty, enigmatic, and captivating, Joan Mitchell was a force of Art to be reckoned with. I recently finished Patricia Albers' biography of the artist, Joan Mitchell: Lady Painter: A Life.
George Seurat's Magnum Opus showcases his developments in color theory, which broke free from the contemporary trend of Impressionism to establish a new branch of Art: Neo-Impressionism. Recently when I traveled to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and viewed "The Seashore" by Jean Metzinger, I found a renewed inspiration for this style. Compelled by this beautiful piece, I began to research and work on a new painting of my own.
