Matisse, Day 27 of January Challenge

The last few days of this challenge have me thinking hard about which master painters I will choose to use as inspiration. Matisse was an early love, his use of bright color appealed to me as a child; I have since learned to appreciate his sophisticated color juxtapositions and flattening of space.
Girl With Green Eyes was painted in 1908. As usual, I have cropped the original, seen below, to fit my square format and simplified to my sensibilities.
