In Which Painting Would You Sit?
Dear Friends of The Tearoom,
The Faery of Creativity must have paid me an extended visit from the Aether in the last few days! I have been inspired to create collages for not one, but two of my very favorite challenge blogs! Above is my submission for the challenge on the Three Muses blog for their excellent challenge "Artist of Choice".
When we lived in Washington, I used to visit The Philips Collection, a museum close to where we lived. The museum has several paintings by Pierre Bonnard. I loved them all and could have sat in front of them for just hours and hours. I have chosen "Le Fenêtre Ouverte, 1921" (The Open Window) as a currently favorite piece. I have wished many times I could sit inside one of the paintings like this one and so here I am! Of course, that is not a picture of me now, but maybe it is me from another time?. Whoever this lady is, she is enjoying a cup of tea, the sunshine, the singing birds, the scent of flowers...
Thank you to the nice ladies at The Three Muses for coming up with such a fun challenge!
And so, I would like to know, in which painting would you like to sit?
