This month I was checking out the Art Bead Scene (ABS) monthly challenge and it inspired me to weave a little bead stitching into one of my pendants. While the palette in my pendant is quite a bit brighter than the Paul Klee's (shown below), I immediately saw the color connection with his.
His pendant is more abstract than mine yet just looking at Klee's rendering, I instantly knew he was capturing a nature scene. And, I just as instantly thought of my pendant. Mine is abstract too but in a much more diffused way. My lines are softer because in my mind's eye, I saw the flowers in a rather unkept garden spilling over themselves versus in a park.
Because I liked the lines in his painting, I decided to add some of my own straight,dotted, and V shapes by stitching a couple rows of beads and adding "flowers." AND I did so because I scored a huge stock of sequins and therefore every embellishment requires the use of sequins until I bore myself to death with the use of them!!
Anyway, here are pictures of the pendant and the necklace I made from it. Also pictured below is the other side of this double sided pendant. I only entered my pendant in the challenge as I was not sure I could use the same piece in both the bead and the jewelry entries.
And here is the Paul Klee painting.
And here is the other side of the pendant.
