Filling the Well: Edith Wharton and Henri Matisse

"Open Window, Collioure"              Henri Matisse

Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.
– Edith Wharton
April 1: John Muir
April 3: Edith Wharton and Henri Matisse 


  1. My students and I studied those windows & then they created paintings of their own windows. I do love them & will enjoy your filling of the well, Michelle. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I can almost feel the breeze off the water...

  3. Look at those gorgeous salmons, pinks, berry reds and cool greens the windows letting us drink in— taking it all in, thanks Michelle!

  4. The colors in the Matisse painting are so subtle and yet so rich. I love it. The quote is a perfect companion. Thanks, Michelle.
