This is the first sketch for September at Stuck?! and it is also their birthday/anniversary.
Happy birthday to all at Stuck?! sketches.
In Amsterdam we spent a day at the Rijkmuseum and Van Gogh galleries.
It was wonderful to see so many cases of the "Real thing" after looking at art in books for years.
Walking towards the Van Gogh museum I spied these trees.
There were people sitting under them.
I'd seen this before but where?......deja vu moment.
It is in a famous impressionists painting!!! Renoir!
I've chosen colours that reflect the painting for my layout and included the bicycle because it was Amsterdam...more bikes than people there.
There is a touch of silver toned inca gold that I applied through a Prima mask, also silver in the doiley.
This reflects a colour in the trees.
As a last minute thought, I added a painters palette charm I've had for over 10 years.
My title is on the flair. Translated it means "I love you" ,but in a non romantic way, more fraternal. That's how I feel about art.
The background cardstock is apricot, not pink and the enamel dots are a dark salmon colour.
