|Chop Suey, Edward Hopper, the inspiration|
Now that said, I have on occasion picked a piece of great art and let it inspire me to my own piece. Last summer I used Edward Hopper's Chop Suey to create a totally new abstract collage (which still isn't quilted btw - sighhhhh). And three summers ago, I used the work of Paul Klee to come up with a new piece for my Praise Ladies series.

I've decided to let the impressionists/post impressionists art exhibit, Monet to Matisse, Painting the Modern Garden to inspire me. After seeing it at the Cleveland Art Museum, I was profoundly moved by the painters' use of color and value. I've been putting together a pinterest board of the over 100 paintings in the exhibit so I can have a list for further study. This is the perfect opportunity to set that study into action!!!
I promise to show you bits and pieces of my process as this progresses over the next couple of months with a big reveal in May.
Also, there is still time to join the blog hop and take up the challenge of art inspired work - just contact me or Alida!
So What have been up to Creatively?
