"Jacob’s Ladder", 1957
by Helen Frankenthaler
I started with a lovely pendant made by Lesley Watt that had the same pink and rusty orange colors as the painting. (This was one of my Bead Fest acquisitions from last August and I have to say again how much fun it was to meet her in person!) I kept the color palette primarily with the pinks and oranges from the pendant. I did add a couple of small touches of turquoise with some Picasso finish melon beads.
