Just now I found this whimsical drawing that I made, goodness knows when. It’s a quick and spare copy of Bonnard’s huge and famous L’atelier au mimosa. I saw the actual painting in the Phillips Collection exhibit on Bonnard in 2002 though I made this drawing from a book.
Bonnard’s painting is 50 x 50 inches square. Seeing this little sketch I think about large spans of very bright — dizzyingly bright — color! In truth all of reality is an amazing field of light that we see with our eyes each day.
