today i am being a fauve. this is a copy i just did of georges rouault's 'head of a woman' 1939. rouault, was a french painter who showed with the fauves, but i think he was not actually considered a fauve. so maybe i am altering art history here. anyway, i love the faces he paints. gives me inspiration.

Maurice de Vlaminck matched the public perception of what fauve painting represented: rebellion, roughness, disorder. A big, muscular man, Vlaminck raced bicycles, wrote racy novels, played the violin loudly, and embraced anarchy: "What I could have done in real life only by throwing a bomb...I tried to achieve in painting."

so, i love the painting and rather you be persuing this than anarchy
