Yellow leaves, midnight blue house, December 28 2015

Impressionistic (instagrammed) rendering of bright yellow leaves on a soggy, mostly gray day. The “broad brush” leaves and the colors’ intensities made me think of some impressionist … like Bonnard? Like in this painting here (Stairs in the Artist’s Garden, c. 1942-44)!

  1. Bonnard’s painting of his garden and the steps is currently part of the National Gallery show of Impressionists at Seattle Art Museum. It is a nice show, with more of Bonnard’s paintings than usual. Also, more Vuillard than usual. We all visited the show on Saturday. Dick
