Painted Lady Day


Today I'm joining Moo-Mania & More who asked us to Make it Feminine.

I have named her Painted Lady and the inspiration for the title

came from this can of paint (actually a button in a previous life) I used as the embellishment.  The background was created using several glitter Crayola crayons.

The focal image was a bookmark put out by the Smithsonian

and I scanned it so you can read the real name of the art and artist.


Today is Day 12 of AEDM, and I created a spread in my Challenges altered book for Moo-Mania & More.

20 thoughtful remarks:

Soft colors, flowy clothes, and soft lines capture feminine on your page. Bet your lovely, painted lady lived in a pretty Victorian painted lady. Thank you for posting the text about the painting. I had never heard of that artist before.

I love Childe Hassam's paintings. Crocker Art, here in Sacramento, had two different exhibits a few years ago featuring American Impressionists, and that was when I discovered his work. Lovely paintings! I would love to see an exhibition featuring his work alone so that I could see more of them.

I love this piece. I also had never heard of Childe Hassam, and I am going to go look him up. I do love how you colored the background. :) I love crayons and that look they give you. And the image is beautiful, especially with a little color! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend my dear friend. hugs-Erika

I'm having trouble posting to some blogs tonight. Just wanted to see if it was me or blogger.

Hi, Elizabeth, thanks for your comment to me over at Creative Every Day. I didn't realize that my current blog settings were restricting people's ability to comment. (In past years, I was blogging at LiveJournal. Now, I'm blogging at Dreamwidth.)

If I did it right, I've now set up my Dreamwidth blog so that unregistered folks can comment, albeit with an anti-spam test. I hope that helps!
