Here's another great entry :)

Helene Bogren - Tea Party

Hi Shazza!
This is my interpretation of Renoir’s painting ‘Luncheon of the Boating Party’. When I saw the challenge I immediately thought of one of my daughter’s favorite games – to arrange tea parties for her dolls, teddy bears etc. (Invited to the party but not visible on the photo are also a teddy bear, a monkey and a cat.)
What I like most about the ARTastic’s Callanges is to really take inspiration from the painting. With this painting I wanted to create a little bit nature, an old feeling and a touch of decadence…
I definitely wanted to have a “roof” (like the one in the painting) to help framing the photo and I made this myself with white cardstock, red and yellow pencils and a bit brown Ink on top of it to make it look older.
I hope you enjoy my entry! I really appreciate your work with this site!

Cheers Helene

  1. Oh I like this LO!! I think the picture is so cute, the perfect topic for this challenge! I love the misting and the roof you made. It's very obvious you drew your inspiration from the painting itself and not just the criteria, and I always love to see that. Absolutely gorgeous work!
