#31DC2013 Day 27: Art is interpretation?

27 Sep

As a Dutchie I should really have gone for the Dutch masters. Really. But no. I thought it would be fun to do Monet, water lilies. Really. But no. My water lilies looked more like a 4 year old’s interpretation of what it would look like if Monet did an aquarium piece. Really.
And I thought I had taken pictures before I “washed” them away. Ok. Enough disappointment.
When I was in high school, there was a poster in my French classroom of the bronze statue of a ballerina by Degas. If you’re not familiar with it: it’s got a real fabric tutu. To me, it was the best piece ever. So I took an interest in Degas. Turns out the majority of his work are either ballerinas or naked women taking baths. Let’s go for a ballerina 🙂

    This was great, great choice, especially since the alternative would have been naked ladies, wonder what people would say if they’d see there would be naked persons on the nails! Quite a chocker! 😀 haha

    OMG Can’t believe my Degas nails are in there! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. And yes, it really is handpainted ;). Maybe I’ll do a step-by-step at some point 🙂
