All The PatternsPosted: May 30, 2016
I had a different outfit in mind for this week’s SIA, inspired by Charles Demuth’s “Spring“, but at the last moment I decided against it, because while it may copy some of the colors of the painting, it doesn’t capture the many patterns of the fabric samples. So I chose to a more casual outfit with all of the patterns instead – there are three patterns here (stripes, polka dots, and leopard print) – four if you count the floral print on my owl pin – and I keep the colors minimal to avoid being a walking fabric store. I’m happy with this – it captures the spirit of the painting, if not the exact colors and patterns.
Don’t forget to stop by Erin’s blog by Wednesday (a day late, since she has a pre-scheduled post on Tuesday) to see other interpretations of this painting!
