kandinsky loves color

Wassily Kandinsky played a special role in my art education. The parents of a friend of mine had a Kandinsky print in their living room. I was ten years old, and I'd never seen an abstract before. I was blown away.

I've always thought it's a good exercise for an artist to copy a painting they admire. I'll leave it to you to figure out (if you're interested) which Kandinsky inspired me to make this mixed-media piece: paper, glue, acrylic paint and markers. Kandinsky's eye for composition is a heck of a lot better than mine, so please view this as an homage, not an attempt at an exact copy.
