Which artist for January?

Anyone have any ideas for January that would include colours we haven't touched on at all yet? I was thinking about something bright and vibrant...what do you guys think? In the mood for something a little brighter?

Okay, I didn't give you any ideas for December because I hadn't even received my first shipment of the Monet, but if I had it would have been Georgia O'Keefe. You filled my unrequested request beautifully... so, now an official list of ideas. How about something Canadian, like Ted Harrison, Irene Klar, or Emily Carr? Can I be lucky twice? Have a great festive season.

You beat me to it! I was thinking Mondrian, all bright colorful squares. Very primary. Great minds.....

Awesome guys...how about Pollack? Of course I'm looking around more paintings and saw another botanical one and almost flipped at how beautiful it was...LOL

What about Matisse or Chagall? Matisse's La Musique is here: http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/matisse/matisse.musique.jpg; Chagall's American Windows are here: http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/modern/citi/object?id=109439&collcatid=11

Nope - 2 votes for Mondrian - you're overruled....

Emily Carris awesome, too. Pollack... possible, only because I finally "got" him when I saw the movie. Before that, I didn't realize that his creative mode was performance art, and we're seeing the motion/dance on the canvas...

Maybe one of Rousseau's Jungle pictures? the brilliant green of the folliage plus the spots of tropical colors?
