season's greetings...

Today is Thursday and we're going to have a 365 Cards art lesson.

Use the geometric paintings of Piet Mondrian as inspiration.

Pieter Cornelis "Piet" Mondriaan, after 1912 Mondrian, was a Dutch painter.

He was an important contributor to the
De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism. This consisted of white ground, upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colours.
(information compliments of Wikipedia)

I picked this particular painting as my inspiration:

I've got one word for you:

Rebel

It was totally non-intentional though...I didn't {a-hem} read about Mondrian until after I created my card...tsk tsk Amy....I used his painting as the inspiration to my creation...you might notice that there isn't any white space or primary colors...LOL.

Personally, I blame Basic Grey and Eskimo Kisses for not having the primary colors and white space...nah, I adore Eskimo Kisses' color palette and wouldn't want them to change anything about it.

Hope you'll join me in today's 365 Cards Challenge!!!

Signed,

The Rebel

Great job Amy, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I think your card is better than his "art" thanks for the inspiration, and for thinking outside the box, a little :)

Angie Tieman said…
Super card!! Great take on Mondrian! My 3rd graders did MOndrian projects before and loved it! Of course, they didn't have such yummy papers to work with! =)

i actually think the "rebellious" stance of having taken mondrian's painting as inspiration, but then totally made it YOUR OWN, is far closer to the spirit of the man & his art than having done anything which followed "the rules"!!! so there! (also, those BG papers just look SO GREAT!!!) ♥♥♥
Elaine said…
You're still Mondrian inspired!! :) I love Mondrian's work - not for my home but for what it is - artwork!
