SIA Inspiration: John Singer SargentPosted: April 25, 2016
We’ve had some pretty unconventional SIA challenges lately, with my brooch, Jen’s embroidered caftan, and Erin’s stained glass dome, so I decided to go the traditional route and pick a painting:
This is “Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose” by John Singer Sargent. Considering that he’s one of my favorite painters, it’s a surprise that we haven’t done a Sargent for SIA before. The warm and idyllic scene is perfect for these late spring/early summer days, the floral motif is a no-brainer, plus there are a lot of colors and textures, so it shouldn’t be too hard to interpret (I hope.) Just remember to send me your outfit photos and/or post by next Monday, May 2nd. Have fun!
