SIA Inspiration: Jean Fetman

This week’s SIA inspiration comes from Erin, and she has a really interesting story behind it. But first, the painting:


This is a painting that Erin found in the dumpster of her apartment building, can you believe it? She doesn’t have a spot to hang it in her house yet, but I hope she does soon, because it’s really a great painting, with lots of bright colors and a surprising sense of depth in the composition. The back reveals the title to be “The Door Within”, and the artist’s name – Jean Fetman, from Highland Park, IL. A quick Google shows that she may have passed away in 2013, so it’s good that Erin managed to save her painting.

I don’t know if I’m going to be able to participate in this SIA or not, because I can’t think of anything in my closet that has all of the colors like this, but I’m going to look forward to your interpretations. Just remember to send them to Erin ( by Monday, August 22nd!

    I am so sorry I have not been around recently. I’ve actually been on a cruise for almost 2 weeks and before I was in France for a week and I can’t get my phone to do roaming. Plus, when I actually had spare time was when we were at sea so no phone reception anyway!!!! ! I do apologise for the lack of blog presence and comments. I do hope you are well!

  2. Oh, I hope you participate! Even if you only wear one thing that’s a color in the painting.
