Welcome to a new Style Imitating Art challenge!
If you are new to Style Imitating Art, here’s what it’s all about.
Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge, 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
Salazar picked this round’s work.
For this round, she picked “Castle and Sun”, a 1928 painting by Paul Klee. We’ve featured Paul Klee on SIA before, but it was a more muted, monochromatic painting (“Angel Applicant“), so she wanted something more colorful this time. We did just had a colorful painting from Shelbee last time, but this one is more graphic, with a different mood and, I think a good contrast of color values or lights and darks. The deadline is Tuesday, August 9, for everyone to get their submission to her.
Have Some Fun & Join Us
Go take a look in your closet and see what you have. Put something together and send it to Salazar at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, May 17th.
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, @14shadesofgrey, and @shelbeeontheedge.
I think that’s it for now.
