Color!

I love working with color in unexpected ways! This is a color combo that I would not normally sit down and use. Not because I don't like the colors. These are just not colors that I wear or have in my home. I found a turquoise paper with purple flowers on it and thought it was beautiful! There is the tiniest strip of it on this piece that inspired me to use the 2 colors together and I really love the combo. Sometimes we get into color ruts and have to move in a complete opposite direction. It's very refreshing to me when this happens. I'm sure this cutie will find a home filled with purples and teals somewhere and she will be quite happy!

  6. I really enjoy your art! For some reason she seems to be in front of a mirror. LOL Maybe because that's the way I've posed in the mirror but would never actually stand in real life. Hmm... might have to get over that. Be extravagant!
