Redon in a Longlocks Bead

By BarbaraAnne:

Ooooo, this one has square beads where the colors mesh into each other. I must have them! Look at the way Susan painted the stick to bring out colors in the bead. I didn’t even notice they were there! *orders* So goes our addiction to the pattern partners, stick and bead, which make up Susan’s art.

As my eyes slumber in Odilon Redon’s abstracts, undreamed-of images arise. After 1890, pastel and oils became his favorite medium. I look at this painting, “Compsition of Flowers,” and see it as a bead on a hair stick as I walk, fully purple, into the morning air.
