SIA: Bear in Boat

It’s Style Imitating Art (SIA) time again, and this week’s inspiration is curated by Jess @ Animated Cardigan. Jess wanted something fun and cute for summer, and a black bear has made a home in her (urban) neck of the woods recently. Art imitating life! Jess thought this charming painting by artist Joyce Koskenmaki would work well.

It’s a modern painting from 2009, so I have a detail of it below. Click on the excerpt to view the entire painting viewable on the artist’s website.

I’m not sure where I’ll go with this one… the colors are certainly quite strong (there are more colors when you see the full painting). One could also go the animal novelty print route… I’ll have to see where inspiration takes me!

So how do you participate in SIA? Everyone is welcome — male, female, blogger, non-blogger, everyone! Just send a photo of an outfit inspired by this week’s SIA choice to this week’s curator, so that means send your pics to Jess by next Monday, June 15, at She’ll post the round-up shortly after on her blog, Animated Cardigan.
