Welcome to Style Imitating Art #5 for 2021.
About Style Imitating Art
Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Daenel of Living Outside the Stacks and me. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspiration image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art-inspired outfits. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.
This Weeks Curator
Today, Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey is the curator.
This Week’s Inspirational Image
Woman With a Dog by Pierre Bonnard, 1891
Salazar has chosen this painting because, “I chose it for its colors, textures, and patterns (especially that gingham dress); besides, any painting that features a cute pet is a plus for me.”
Personally, I like that she has chosen Pierre Bonnard. He did go through quite a style progression and his later style (after the turn of the century) influenced me when I was in art school.
I see quite a few ideas floating around with this painting. For a rare time, I won’t be pet photo-bombed. Now to find out out cooperative one of the fur kids will be when i want them in the photo!
Will You Join the Fun?
I hope this art inspires you to create a look and that you will join us. Send a photo of your SIA inspired outfit along with a small blurb on how you were inspired to Salazar whose email is 14shadesofgreyblog.com by March 9th. She share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday March 10th.
Anyone can participate and you certainly do not have to have a blog.
If you do share your inspirations on Instagram use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you are there. You can also tag us in the images. Our Instagram names are: @terrigardner_meadowtree, @daenelt and @14shadesofgrey.
