Penchant for purple

You don’t have to be OLD to wear purple, and I love the whole purple family: plum, lilac, mauve, magenta, red-violet, royal purple. Perhaps, in another lifetime, I was part of the nobility class or had royal blood, and that explains my penchant for purple (tee-hee). I could never be content with merely wearing purple: it is so much fun to paint with it. And when you swirl reds into blues, or blues into violets, or other such brush dances, purple is sure to emerge in patches of glory.

I added purple to one of my paintings in progress. For now, these are the the results of flourishing leftover purple paint onto magazine pages:

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
