I've always wanted to paint something that was a little bit "Fauvish." Les Fauves (Wild Beasts) were a short lived expressionist movement that was all about color. I think it is easy to rely so much on color that the work looks clumsy or amateurish--even paintings of the original Fauves sometimes do. I decided to just do it. As I was painting I thought, "I don't know--I don't know," but then all of a sudden, it worked. What do you think?
I am going to submit it to DPW because the challenge this week is stripes.
