Etsy picks inspired by the ABS February Challenge Painting Amapolas by Edward Julius Detmold


                                      Amapolas by Edward Julius Detmold

What a beautiful painting we have for the February ABS Monthly Challenge!!  The title is Spanish for Poppies.  I love the rhythm and patterns in this painting; the sense that there is a warm breeze blowing and that the earth is fully awake and in bloom. And the colors:  I believe I will never forget these shades of red.  Inspired by Detmold's  luscious poppies, I picked out a grouping of art beads for you to look at, enjoy and be creative with.

Two Sisters Design is one of my favourite artisans. I've been lucky enough to visit their shop in Carmel several times. The other artists have beautiful beads too.
