Wassily Kandinsky is one of my favorite artist. He did experiments in line, color and shape like a scientist. His paintings have an innocent and energetic quality of intellectual curiosity and passion for surprise that I am lacking these days so here they are, two bright suns for my winter of discontent. I often use his works to show children some new ways to use line and color. I explain to them that the man who painted this was an artist, and we can be artists too by trying new things with our materials.kandinsky-composition1.jpgkandinsky-museumlithograph.jpg

    I chose a couple of bright, warm ones to stand close to and thaw my imagination. I am glad you like them.

    Yes, I too am a Kandinsky fan. I saw some of his work at a temporary exhibition in Barcelona and the whole environment of the room was quite literally dancing.

    What a perfect way to express it! His paintings dance some darkly some brightly.
