A jubilant heart to lift my spirits - inspired by the cut-outs of Matisse.
My husband and I had just returned from seeing the movie Twelve Years a Slave, which weighed us down, as it should, with details of the slave trade in the pre-Civil War United States. I must say, I'll never again be able to watch Gone With the Wind, with its simplistic take on slavery.
I knew that I wanted to do a Matisse themed heart and I hurried to complete it before daylight faded.
It was fun to make and I got it done just in time to snap a picture on my porch!
Hope you've had a great day!!
