SIA Inspiration: Carl Larsson

It’s my turn to host SIA, and we’ve had some challenging pieces lately, so I went with a conventionally “pretty” painting:

This is “Karin at the Shore” by Swedish artist Carl Larsson. I picked it because of the soft watercolor tones, delicate lines, and the contrast between the lady’s dark dress and the colorful flowers. I thought it was a nice, summery image, but apparently it was painted in late autumn, and the flowers froze the next day. Well, I think it still works for summer. Remember to send me your outfits by next Tuesday, June 28th, and have fun!
