April showers bring May flowers [SIA Post]

Style Imitating Art

First, I want to say thank you for all the wonderful comments on my post last week on finding our dreams and our passions. It’s nice to know that many of us have felt this same way.

I think that’s one of the reasons the growARTS program resonates with me. Annabelle pointed out to me that many of the artists have never received a paycheck before. Sometimes their first paycheck ever is when a painting they created sells. I mean, watch this video and tell me that this program isn’t amazing.

Which is why I chose another growARTS painting for this week’s Style Imitating Art challenge. I wanted to buy this particular piece so badly but it was already sold by the time I made it to the last show.

It’s all of my favorite colors: purple, gray, black, and white. It would go perfectly in my dressing room (aka a bedroom I’ve turned into my closet) so I’m thinking I’ll need to commission another one from the artist!

I also thought it was appropriate for the first day of May, since all the trees are budding and flowering here in Chicago.

Whether you choose to interpret this painting by wearing these colors, wearing florals or something else entirely, just snap a photo and send it to looplooks@gmail.com by Tuesday, May 9th and I’ll feature it in the round-up post on Wednesday, May 10th.

I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone does with this one!
