Beau and I went to the Impressionism exhibition at the SAM for my birthday. I fell in love with the bright colors and dreamy, light filled quality of Bonnard’s paintings.
Fascinatingly, a couple of his paintings were stolen from a gallery in London and discovered in an Italian kitchen 40 years later. They had been bought for around $100 but were worth $600,000!
My next painting endeavor is going to be trying my hand at impressionism. I’ve tried with watercolor, but I think gouache will give me better results. Stay tuned!
