This month’s amazing inspiration is from one of my favorite artists, Helen Frankenthaler. I fell in love with her abstract expressionist paintings and sophisticated use of color when I was in art school. This painting just makes me swoon.
I could make jewelry for days with this color palette. Love the pops of color in terracotta and orchid mixed with those succulent greens and balanced by those neutral hues.
I could see you mixing in colors with leather, waxed linen, sari silk or color patina on chain. Get creative with how you use color in this month’s challenge.
I checked out the Art Bead Scene editor’s shops for a few picks that would work perfect for this month’s challenge.

So what colors are you loving from this month’s painting?
Do you find the abstract paintings more freeing or more of a challenge to interpret?
