New Challenge for March

The windy month has started, with little hints of spring, and Art Bead Scene blog has a new monthly challenge. Create a necklace design inspired by this beautiful Matisse painting, add it to the ABS Flickr group, and you might win a prize from one of the editors.

I love this painting, such rich color and inspirational images too. The shadows, a hint of a wicker chair, the flowers in the background.

instructions are on the ABS blog site, check it out.

And even if you don't want to submit something yourself, it's great fun to see what others are doing based around the same source of inspiration.

I love this painting! I once challenged myself to replicate small 3" squares of the painting using nothing but a few tempera paint colors. The results were stunning and by themselves represented interesting color theory. I came over from Art Bead Scene...I will have to go back to check out your challenge!
Enjoy the day Llyynn! I love your site!
