Still Life with Flowers and Fruits / Натюрморт с цветя и плодове

The December monthly challenge on Art Bead Scene Studio is Suzanne Valadon's Still Life with Tulips and Fruit Bowl. I was captivated by the contrast of colors and the dusky atmosphere. However, the necklace I made showcases the bright colors. The three focal beads are by Janna Petrovna of Petrovna Lampwork -  the green and yellow are hollow and the red one has a textured surface.
Предизвикателството за декември в блога на Art Bead Scene Studio е Натюрморт с лалета и фруктиера на Сюзан Валодон. Бях запленена от контраста между цветове и сумрачната атмосфера. Колието ми обаче е в ярките цветове, трите централни мъниста са на Жанна Петровна от Petrovna Lampwork - зеленото и жълтото са издути (кухи отвътре), а червеното е с текстурирана повърхност.



I was also captivated by the life of the artists and made a collage "In the Eye of the Beholder" - these are her self-portraits and portraits by other famous artists that I found in the Wikipedia article above. Interesting, isn't it?
Бях запленена и от живота на художничката и направих този колаж "В моите очи" - това са нейни автопортрети и портрети от известни художници, които ми попаднаха в Уикипедия (версията на английски). Интересно, нали?


I saw the painting below in the Boston (MA, USA) Museum of Fine Arts but at that time I didn't know the artist was Renoir's model for it - Dance at Bougival.
А картината по-долу видях на живо в Музея на изящните изкуства в Бостън, САЩ. Но тогава не знаех, че художничката е моделът на Реноар за нея - "Танц в Бужевал".

  1. That is an interesting collage that you have made showcasing how the artist was portrayed both by herself as well as the artists that she posed for. IS that a green glass bauble in the center? I am scared of wearing big glass beads for the fear of dropping and breaking them

    1. Yes, Divya, it is an absolutely fantastic big green glass bauble and I was so afraid of dropping it while trying on :) I just couldn't help making the collage after I saw Renoir's portrait and the the dance painting.
