Finding Matisse cutouts in the melting snow

There have been no shortage of interesting visual things that I’ve found within the slate slidewalks of Glen Ridge (NJ), and it’s not the first time I’ve seen something Matisse-like in the melting snow … yesterday I was walking my dogs as I usually do in the afternoons, and saw a stream-like puddle from melting snow on the slate sidewalks in town, and it caught my attention.

Below left you can see the original larger-picture view, followed by a cropping around the “figure” that caught my eye (center), and a Matisse cut-out (right) that comes to mind when looking at this puddle. Who would have thought that daily dog walks would also include regular art history lessons?
