Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!


"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..." Words of the late artist Frank Howell...

Wednesdays Celebrating Color- Violet (aka Purple!)

I hope you weren't holding your breath waiting for the color post today...I had a dental appointment, then a stop by Michael's, and now the day is almost gone!  Better late than never, though, so here we go...

Violet is more commonly known as purple.  Whatever you call it, it is very often declared the "favorite" color of females.  Don't know why the guys out there don't care as much for it, or even if it  a fact, but it just seems like I've never heard a guy say he likes purple... I've heard many girls say they love it.  Anyway, let me show you some wonderful pics of some violet or purple!

African Violets - not toxic for either cats or dogs. They like moist soil and bright light, but don't need direct sunlight.

When you add white to purple, you get lavender.  Have you ever seen lavender looking this pretty and delicious?

And, when you add a little black, this is what you get - a very dramatic, dark purple.

Next week we'll be hanging out with red-violet, as we work our way around to the warm side of the color wheel.  I'll try to have that one up on time!
