SIA Inspiration: Frederic Edwin ChurchPosted: April 12, 2021
It’s my turn to host SIA, and since we’ve had an unusual piece last time with Terri, I decided to go for something more classical:
This is the painting “Aurora Borealis” by American landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church. I picked it because it reminds me of my own experience seeing the Aurora last year in Russia – this is much closer to what we actually saw (though ours was not as spectacular) than the eye-searingly bright lights you often see in photos nowadays. The muted color palette combined with the luminescence of the Aurora could also be interesting. So put together an outfit, send it to me by next Tuesday (April 20th), and have fun!
