Botero Inspiration

When we were visiting Bogota back in 2015, I learned about the works of Fernando Botero, a figurative artist, and sculptor from Colombia.

I found his paintings humorous as he painted an “enlarged” view of his subjects…..

“Una Familia”

Even his fruit bowls were rotund……

But what I really liked were his flower arrangements…..

Wouldn’t it be fun to use one of these paintings as inspiration for a Botero-shaped collage quilt?

I know….I know…..something else to add to my list of future projects!!!

….which reminds me of a great quote from Gilmore Girls…..

“Hey, do you know that if the entire population of China walked by, the line would never end because of the rate of population increase? That’s my list, every Chinese person in the world.”
