Art Challenge: Winter Salon
I’ve been sitting in my dark living room in the early evening wondering where all the daylight has gone.
Actually, it’s pretty simple really, Rain-couver over here plus end of daylight savings means low light.
I like my fairy lights and my candles. It’s all sparkly and cozy. But eventually I turn on the lights and read my books.
I was wondering what to do for our art challenge this week. Salon, an art salon, always seems like a romantic Bloomsbury concept, but I’m not in England at the moment, I’m in Canada. For me, there isn’t anything more Bloomsbury here on the West Coast than the Group of Seven and especially Emily Carr.
So here is is what I am offering you today, dreams of a winter salon. Emily Carr gathering inspiration, sitting, possibly having a picnic, possibly only a glass of wine, in the diminishing wintry light, painting the landscape in her mind.
Art: A 7 piece collage partially painted in Emily Carr brush strokes (acrylics), (just the way Emily might have seen it and held it in her mind till she got back to her salon.)
Thank you so much Stefanie for hosting our Art Challenge this weekend.
