|Young Corn, Grant Wood|
Oil on Masonite board, 1931
It's Monday and that means Style Imitating Art, y'all! I really enjoyed the playfulness of this painting and of course the varying shades of green (because in my world, green is a neutral and every color looks good with it). But, mostly it made me yearn for summer. When I put the outfit together I used a top I haven't worn since summer and a dress I bought with spring in mind. It made me realize how long ago summer was and how far away spring still is. I miss sunny days and green, rolling hills dotted with trees and corn fields.
This winter has been bleak, guys. Instead of giant piles of white snow that are just ripe for snow balls and snow forts, we have yards full of mud and dead grass. Instead of quiet, peaceful flurries, we are slipping around on freezing rain. Yuck.
And since spring doesn't really grace Wisconsin until April, this is going to be a tough few months. But until then, here is a little glimpse of what could be.

While my husband was taking the pictures he kept giving me a funny look and I said, "What? Does it look weird?" The look deepened. So, I said, "Well, I don't know how it looks. Give me some direction!"
This is what happened.
