Pierre Bonnard

“I haven’t lived with that long enough to paint it.” (Pierre Bonnard)

When I hear the name “Pierre Bonnard,” I think first of color — riveting, scintillating color with the power to sweep one away into the deep mysteries of life’s simplest daily pleasures and rituals. And I like that. His method was decidedly thoughtful and slow. His work took form from various initial renderings in pencil, watercolor, gouache, until over time and with increasing familiarity with his chosen subject, the completed version of the artwork emerged.
