May Plant Parade

Art Nouveau - French for "The New Art." An international art movement and style of decoration and architecture of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, characterized particularly by the curvilinear depiction of leaves and flowers, often in the form of vines. These might also be described as foliate forms, with sinuous lines, and non-geometric, "whiplash" curves.

Welcome to the world of the Art Nouveau period with a splash of the rain forest. . .

The art of the Art Nouveau period was full of curves and vine-like lines to give it such a decorative style, so we are going to add those elements into our paintings.

We are going to concentrate on one artist that gave us many posters in this style: Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939). He was one of the most important decorative artists working in Paris at the turn of the century. His distinctive and original posters and his decorative panels in le style Mucha became almost synonymous with French Art Nouveau. Here
You will find some of his work here.

Now, let’s see where the Rain Forest Splash comes in. . .oh, yes, the flower:
Bird of Paradise!!

We are going to marry one time period with a classical Rain Forest beauty! Mucha never considered this, but we are creative artists and may start our own movement!!

Any medium, naturally!

Reveal date is May 25th. . .no sooner!

The object is to have fun!! Now, create a piece of art you may not have thought of doing before!

Think 'lyrical, decorative, line' and see where it takes you!

Glad you are going on this adventure with me. . .have a ball!!
