I'm going to Nice, France in September and top of my list is to visit the Matisse museum. His use of bold colors is so out of my comfort zone, but something I strive for. The way he depicts the female form is so unapologetic and absolute; I want to be one of the women dancing in Dance.  

On my last visit to Detroit we went to John K. King's Used & Rare Book shop and I left with a copy of "Henri Matisse Paper Cut-Outs" which is inspiring a new collection of prints.
