On one of my "couch" days hubby and I finally watched "Woman In Gold" . It was out early Spring this year starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds. Have any of you seen it? It's the true story of Maria Altmann who sought to regain a world famous painting of her Aunt Adele (done by Gustav Klimt) after it was stolen by the Nazis. I LOVED this movie!!! It was heartbreaking, very moving, and sometimes funny. Helen Mirren was spectacular in her role and she and Ryan Reynolds had a wonderful chemistry onscreen. I highly recommend it!
It so moved me I made a journal page inspired by the movie and Klimt:
The background is a gelli plate print on which I stamped with Lumiere gold paint. On her dress are squares of Japanese origami papers collaged over a black dress also painted with a light coat of gold Lumiere paint. If only I knew how to capture it...
Linking to Art Journal Journey (theme this month is collage); Art It Friday -Show Your Face (theme is about being inspired by an artist); and Paint Party Friday.
I did manage to get two quick and easy Christmas cards done as I needed them ASAP:
and they are perfect for this week's Simon Wednesday Challenge which is "Let It Snow"!
Last week hubby and I went to a local art museum to see several special exhibits on display. It would be too much to show at once but over the next few posts I will share photos.
Today I am sharing photos of an exhibition by photographer Jeffrey Becom titled Colors Of India:
I hope you can click on it for a larger view to read.
Here are some of his pigment photos:
Aren't those colors just gorgeous? India has been one of many places on my bucket list so I especially enjoyed this exhibit!
That's it for today's post. Oh, if you haven't seen my post showing my DIY planner along with the You Tube video that inspired it do check it out HERE!
Wishing you all good health and a wonderful weekend.
