February: Art to Inspiration

I'm so excited about today's post as it's the first installment of the "Art to Inspiration" project, created by Supal from Chevrons & Eclairs. Every first Wednesday of each month participants produce a post inspired by a work of art as selected by Supal. The collected results will be posted over here.

Today's work of art comes from:

Hiroshi Matsumoto, December 2010 - 4 

I was inspired by the two vibrant patches of blue in this painting. It reminded me of this pair of cobalt hued shoes I bought (a score at $7 from a shoe store in Downtown Crossing) but haven't yet worn. We're seeing cobalt a lot lately; I've worn it before, and now I'm inspired to give these heels a test drive. (Check out my Pinterest for more cobalt inspiration).

HOLY!!! Those are FANTASTIC shoes. I think anything blue and ruffled would win my heart :)

I love the vibrant color of these shoes and the ruffle is such a cute detail! I can totally see how the art relates to this pair of heels :)

Simply gorgeous. I have an affinity for anything with a ruffle. Love that you zeroed in on the cobalt and accented it with the floral art - great tie in!!

Cute! I've only read two of the posts so far, but I think they're so interesting, all of us went in different directions! Love it!

Love this! I've been thinking of doing some "inspired by" posts sort of similar to this. You might just have pushed me over the edge!

That Art Inspiration project looks so interesting! What a great idea, art into fashion and lifestyle! I like how you saw your shoes in the painting, it's just about the right colour too! $7 for a pair of shoes...what a bargain!! xx
