It’s time for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge, and this one will be the final SIA challenge for the year. We will be taking a break for the end-of-the-year and new-year holidays. So if you’re participated at all in SIA this year, even just once, come join us again! Or if you have ever wanted to participate in SIA but haven’t yet found the time/inspiration, come join us for the first time!
I started us off in 2016 with a painting of a sunrise, so I thought it would be fitting to close out SIA for 2016 with a painting of a sunset. This is Railroad Sunset, a 1929 painting by Edward Hopper.
It’s a simple yet stirring painting, and there is a lot of color inspiration for you. So there are a lot of color choices here, you could do stripes… you could do a collage… go where your inspiration takes you, and that will be the right choice. Personally, I never try to think too hard at first about my SIA-inspired outfits — I just go where the inspiration leads me, and then fill in the details along the way.
Participating in SIA challenges is easy, and all are welcome to participate, bloggers and non-bloggers. Just send a photo of an outfit inspired by this week’s inspiration artwork — selfies, flat lays, and collages also just fine — to me at email@example.com by next Monday, Dec. 12, 10 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. I’ll post the round-up on my blog the next day.
Since this is the final SIA challenge for the year, let’s go out with a super-duper finish, y’all!
