Why I Love Kandinsky



"I applied streaks and blobs of colors onto the canvas with a
palette knife and I made them sing with all the intensity I could...."
~Wassily Kandinsky


That pretty much sums it up.

***

Get out there and apply some streaks and blobs!
Have a wonderful, colorful, creative and unihibited week!
Happy Monday!

Question: Would the brilliance of a

Kandinsky go a long way in breathing some life back into these

listlessly lissome and lifelessly anemic all white rooms?


What I'm saying is, couldn't these rooms use a little color?


Or are they already perfect?





What do you think?

  3. Hi Splen! well...there is one plant, it's just not alive! I would love these rooms with some color thrown in...they are like an almost blank canvas now..

  4. Yes Kit, a BIG Kandinsky would absolutely do the trick!!! My house is far from white but I'd still love a BIG Kandinsly. LOVE his work! Maybe even a small one. Great post, great approach. Merci.

  6. They definitely could use a punch of color. I usually shy away from too bright a color palate, but they would fit perfectly in a black and white color scheme as well.

  7. Those rooms are definitely waiting for a touch of color... either subtle or bold...

  8. i would have to refuse access to my golden retriever, otherwise there would be too much non-carefully selected color placed randomly. i love my juliet, but her hair...

  9. I love the starkness of these rooms, but bright abstracts in a white room can be fantastic. I think it depends on what you're going for, i.e. dramatic vs. romantic or soothing.

  10. Agreed, as much as I love the serenity of an all white room, those paintings (and I love Kandinsky too) would be amazing in those spaces!

  15. Kit I adore Kandinsky... I can still remember the movie "Six Degrees of Separation" when Stockard Channing is spinning the Kandinsky as it is painted on both sides. I do love all white rooms but I agree a pop of colour with a breathtaking Kandinsky would be perfect!
    Have a lovely day

  16. I, for one, am tired of all white rooms--yes indeed--Kandinsky could go a long way here, but there is a sameness in decorating when the all white program goes on and on and on in every room deemed French--un peu trop pour moi.
