COSMETICS STILL LIFE
Last month I taught my kid's art class about rhythm in art, using the paintings of Matisse and the sounds of Jazz. Repeating sounds in intervals make rhythm in music, just as repetitions of color and shape make pattern in a painting. When I set up this still life of soap, nail polish and cosmetics, I was paying attention to the rhythm in this composition. The wonderful thing about teaching is, you learn more yourself.
