Get ready to dress to impress...May's Dress Up is going for Baroque! Yep, the artist for May is none other than Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640). Rubens, a Flemish Baroque painter, is known for his "extravagant style that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality." He painted landscapes, altar pieces, mythological subjects and portraits. Think gold, large, heavy fabrics, and lace.
There were some great suggestions, including Japanese art and the works of Gauguin. Both of which will be themes in the coming months! There is still time to post any April dresses still out there. Just click HERE to see the Art Deco dresses and to post yours!
I need to sign off before I start on a rant about the Royal Wedding (I refuse to watch anything about it!), gas prices, and/or how I am not watching American Idol anymore (since Paul was voted off)!
Toodles for now!
