In The Museum at The Outlawz Twisted Thursay

  It's time for a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the optional twist is:  "In the Museum!"  My piece is inspired by the art of Georgia O'Keeffe.  Her most famous skull art is probably Cow's Skull with Calico Roses, but she did several pieces of skull art including the skulls of deer, cow, horse, human, ram, etc.  

As I researched Ms O'Keeffe, I found this video (Some sensitive subject matter, but definitely explains who she was.) you might find educational!  

Obviously, I was inspired by the skull and flowers as well as her non-conformist attitude!   She also had a sort of 'go big or go home' attitude.  I took this in my own direction with a more Shabby Chic western influence and far less minimalism in my piece.  (As many of you know, CAS is usually not my "go to" form!)

  Check out the video below for the assembly of this piece!

Mix It Up:  AG + optional Mixed Media

My Time to Craft:  Hobbies (This includes a couple of my fav hobbies:  I love mixed media with fabrics and such.  I also enjoy researching and learning about artists and their styles.  It's fun to peruse the internet looking for info and then celebrating an artist with my own take.)
As You Like It:  Pearls or can't make me choose!  hahaha  Seriously, I love them both and have them both on this layout!  I love the sparkle of gems and the shine of pearls!  I enjoy coloring them both as I've colored the gems in this piece.
