First, you must know about the monthly challenge:
This is, Insula Dulcamara by Paul Klee, 1938
31 1/2 x 69 in, Oil on newsprint, mounted on burlap. Klee Foundation, Bern, Switzerland.
This painting is the largest of Klee’s finished paintings. If you would like to read more about this wonderful painting, please go here to the April Monthly Challenge. They have a fantastic article wrote all about this painting of Paul Klee.
Now, here's the monthly theme: Your entry this month can be influenced by the colors, pattern or whatever you choose to focus on for your creation. Just remember to include at least one art bead in your design.
Also, if you'd like to view all the entries so far please go here to Flickr.
I'm going to submit him because I feel in comparison to all the muted colors, the black made a bold statement and through Moon Dance I feel the contrast generated in the same boldness as in Klee's painting. The Artbead/Cab in Moon Dance was made by Marie Segal at Art From My Heart and the mold was made by Maureen Carlson.
My next piece is "The Colors of Klee".
This Artbead/Cab was made by Kristie-Lou Brigham at, Sculpted Windows Wire Wrapped Jewelry Journal. I felt that the wonderful colors that Kristie used to make this with the exclusion of the black are incorporated into this artbead/cab and matches so perfectly with Paul Klee's painting, also the moon to me signifies the half moons found in each corner at the top of Klee's painting. So I knew that I had to make a piece from this and submit it also.
Next I want to tell yous about my piece, "Inspired" With this wonderful Steampunk Artbead/Cab that Beth at Bellesanbeaus Crafts made for me I was so inspired by the blues and greens in Klee's painting and also the primitive face, that through this gorgeous Artbead the Beth had made I feel involked the very same feeling that I felt when I had seen Klee's painting. So, I'd like to introduce to yous:
I really enjoy making the mosaic pictures and then looking at all the wonderful mosaic pictures that everyone makes every week. But it's all thanks to Mary, at Little Red House. So, a big thank you to Mary for hosting this event! Also, if you would be so kind to visit Mary she'd love to have you, and while you're there to look at all the other mosaic pictures our friends here in Blogland have made, there's some beautiful and fascinating ones to for you to see!
Thanks so much for stopping in today and I hope that you have a beadiful day! So...until the next time, Bead Happy!
Hugs and happy beading...
