Now isn't this a fabulous inspiration! The gorgeous Helene Bogren has chosen it as our inspiration for ARTastic this month.

Helene says ...C.O. Hultén is an artist from my region in Sweden. He’s 95 years old and has been an artist for more than 70 years! I don’t know if he’s famous abroad but he’s certainly a famous national artist. A funny thing is that he was a friend of my grandpa. My grandpa was the owner of a small printing office and as he was printing lithographs he came to know some of the local artists at that time. They used to come to his house and my mother has told me that Hultén was the one she liked most as he was very kind to her.
So this month you have a choice ...
1. You may use the tutorial and do a mixed media layout along the lines of the one Helene has produced. You can make this as detailed as you like or merely take parts of it what Helene has shown you (using mist, ink, acrylic paint, gesso, modeling paste etc) in any way on the background.
2. You may use the oil on canvas painting by C.O. Hultén to inspire you (think diamond shapes, grey, blue and peach tones or night-time things).
3. You can combine them both and see where this takes you.

This is my page

I choose to work on this smaller sized page, I really am loving it & used mixed media components of paint, & masks & stamping to create this 'Nourishing' LO about books & reading.

Please join in, as it is a great challenge blog.
