Take whatever part of the painting that catches your eye and translate that into beads. Maybe it’s a few of the colors. Or it might be Kandinsky’s bold black line that captures your imagination, try recreating that vibrancy in wire. You might see the “trees” in his painting. That is one of the things our brain does when we look at abstract art, we try to define it by shapes that are familiar. There are no right or wrong ways to interpret the painting into jewelry. Just have fun while you do it!
