Hello from a very soggy Somerset, UK. Looking out of the window, it’s a far cry from the scene below. Well, the sky is a similar colour, I guess.
‘Cattelya Orchid and Three Hummingbirds’, Martin Johnson Heade (1871)
Once again, the editorial team at Art Bead Scene decided to accept the monthly challenge themselves and run a blog hop to show off the results. My take on Heade’s painting is quite a literal translation:
I’ve used one of co-editor Mary‘s birds and mixed it with czech glass and a vintage flower dropper. I’ve also used a Missficklemedia (I think!) toggle clasp. It’s a simple piece but I like it well enough. I’m sure the rest of the team will have come up with some more elaborate designs. To check them out follow these links:
