This was another exercise in copying a master painting, to jog me out of my color habits into something new. Most people know Piet Mondrian for his minimalist colorful abstract paintings, but he actually painted beautiful atmospheric landscapes and flowers also.
The original is shown side by side with my own, rather poor copy below. Mine on the left, Mondrian’s on the right. Once again, I worked against the clock and on canvas paper, so it is not intended to be a “work of art”.
A short poem for you:
Spring Night: An Impromptu Poem The wild reed breezes have secretly left with the wind, The brilliance of the chaotic springtime already half gone. Leaning over the stone balustrade, I rest for a little while, The courtyard moon somewhere between there and not. Chinese Nun Jingnuo, translated by Grant, Beata, in Daughters of Emptiness: Poems of Chinese Buddhist Nuns Wisdom Publications.
