Create 3 Focal Point Prints in 3 Weeks

~Eastern Folk~

I found a huge source of inspiration in folk art, particularly that of Ukraine, Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland and Russia. The traditional motifs used in painting and embroidery are so bold and colorful. I really do want to live in a house covered in all of those beautiful floral paintings! The traditional costumes are meticulously crafted, and covered in intricate embroidery. As a child of the 80's, I think in some part I still associated eastern Europe with all of the Reagan-era anti-communist/Soviet bloc rhetoric that abounded at that time. This really has opened my eyes to the cultural beauty of that part of the world. :)
