Every time I see someone’s art I’m inspired! With some, the inspiration is so powerful I have to weave some beads and create a little piece of art myself! It’s a thrilling ride, a color festival and I don’t want to go home.
Now it’s time to share some powerful art, a piece that moved me to create another visual experience that will delight the eyes and lift the spirits! Color guaranteed!
Since I was a kid I have always been somewhat obsessed with the 19th century Bohemian style, the women’s flowing and richly patterned skirts, fringe scarves, earthy colors, bangle, dangles and of course the bead work!
I feel a connection to this charming definition: Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, involving musical, artistic or literary pursuits, with few permanent ties. Bohemians can be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds.
As I read or view photos of this time, the people, the dress and the lifestyle, wonderful patterns fill my thoughts and so I create, this is how I see it. Pierre-Auguste Renoir 1868 oil painting “The Bohemian” is a beautiful visual of this time!
