Inspiration post - Henri Matisse

I imagine every art student has done a project on Henri Matisse, It seems to be an art curriculum staple. I remember cutting out colored shapes and sticking them on to colored card way back when I was 13 or 14 years old. I must admit that back then I found this task dull, I have always loved art but this cutting and sticking of coloured shapes really didn't inspire me.
However at the moment I can't get bold colours and block shapes out of my mind. I have so many images in my head that need releasing! Horses, homes, trees, rain, people....all just shapes, colors and textures.... Here are some of my favorite works by Henri Matisse..

 'The Snail' 1953

The Clown (jazz) 1943)

'La Gerbe' 1953
