This month the inspiration art is Portrait of Olga in the Armchair by Pablo Picasso.
As always, an art bead needs to be part of the piece. An art bead is a bead, charm, button or finding made by an independent artist. Art beads are the vision and handiwork of an individual artist. Many people make their own beads for the contest, alas, I do not have that skill yet. But many other designers sell their beads, so I am still able to participate.
I love the colors in this painting. I especially love the flowers in the chair and Olga's expression. I have fun trying to decide what she is thinking and somehow feel a kinship with that look.

She has awesome beads that I find very attractive. These beads are her branch-mix disc beads in teal. I love the colors and the peaceful feeling I get when I look at them. It goes along with the feeling from the painting. And the colors are perfect. The flowers in the chair of the painting inspired me to make dangles of some vintage flower beads that I have. I love
these beads but have a hard time finding a way
This was fun to make and a creation that stretches me and that I love.
