Double Portrait with a Glass of Wine" 1917, oil on canvas. The artist was 30 years old when he painted this. His paintings are usually dream scapes or childhood narratives, every day worlds full of the wonderful and miraculous. Chagall is famous for his use of colour and his central theme of LOVE.
Untitled 2002, acrylic on canvas. The artist was 70 years old when she painted this. Born 1932, she has led a traditional nomadic bush life and now paints instinctively, using line, colour, and form in an immediate and breath taking way.
I'm prepping to teach painting tomorrow and am trying not to fall back on my own familiar ways. It's so difficult to push myself over into the unknown.
