This week's Style Imitating Art was nothing short of daunting to me. The colors and the overall aesthetic of the art is quite different than my own. Husband, on the other hand, loved this one.

I drew inspiration from the strong but minimal colors and graphics. I barely have any red because it clashes with my coloring so, I am literally wearing every red piece I own in these pictures. Most of this was pulled out of the deep recesses of my closet and I actually had to pull the grayish green (they are more green in person) tights out of my bedroom garbage where I had thrown them a few days earlier for having a holes behind the knee. Luckily, you can't see the holes in these pictures. The red and green are right on for the picture and the belt's crackled pattern ties in quite nicely to the cracks on the mountain.
I find it so interesting how doing this always gives me a greater appreciation for art I wouldn't normally pay much attention to.
See ya later, Alligators!
