The Curator
This week's curator is me.  (I guess I have a "thing" for impressionist artwork?!)  I selected it because I wanted to capture the attitude of "dog days of summer."  I like this painting because the women/girls seem to be taking a nice, languishing break from the day's labors.  There's a lot of inspiration here, whether you'd like to emulate one of the outfits, or the relaxed spirit.

What do you think you'll wear?  I'm so looking forward to your interpretations!
