Art Bead Scene JANABS Challenge - On Black
As I walked around my snowy backyard last Thursday I pondered the painting by Claude Monet titled "La Pie." I was struck by the similarities of the parallel lines of the stems of our remaining chive plants to the parallel lines of the fence in the painting. Here is a link to my favorite photo of these chives http://www.flickr.com/photos/jillpalumbo/4254606171/If you look at its title, you will see my attempt at a haiku poem. I wanted to capture this feeling in verse and in my artwork. That is what I enjoy most about challenges, they make me more observant and also encourage me to stretch as an artist by exploring new techniques and ideas.
