Re: Oil-from-life challenge, April 2019: optional plein air theme!

Sorry you were having a bad day yesterday, Ronsu, but you must be having a good day today because that is a terrific start to an indoor scene. I think the composition works beautifully, and I love the way the shapes inside echo the shapes outside. I always like paintings with windows looking out onto other scenes, where indoors and outdoors are not easily separated, if that makes sense. This makes me think of Matisse and Freilicher too! And I agree with Grotius about the alizarin. I was thinking of putting that little square vase of roses I just painted somewhere else in my house and painting it in more of an environment, where it isn't the focus, and your painting is really inspiring me to do that. Thanks!
