Fearless Friday, Art in Bloom

Does art imitate life?

Or does life imitate art?

I don’t have a tutorial for this painting, but I do have a framing idea that might be considered a little fearless

I love to change the scenery on our mantel and often use this large empty frame

This summer I have a small painting inside this big frame and really like it, it’s different and unexpected

Try using a frame with a slightly smaller canvas and let the wall color become “the mat”

It’s also fun to use a large frame to highlight seasonal decor

Earlier this summer a flower arrangement in a watering can was inspired by this watering can pillow, and I realized one of my paintings was of a similar arrangement

So is life imitating art?

It’s fun to do a floral arrangement or vignette based on a painting, and many museums feature Art in Bloom events

This a great way to get a lot of impact from a small painting or flower arrangement

    I love how you use your frame to decorate the mantle. It is unusual and very artsy. As usual, I love how you use color. Is is ok to mention the little French chair, love it!

    I really like this idea, and since I’ve been painting on smaller canvases and boards, I can grab a few larger frames from our attic and copy this look. I just noticed your Alabama Women Bloggers button on your sidebar. I should join the group!
