More Lavender


When I go tidy up the studio this morning before I start, I think I will put all the lavender/mauve/purple/ paints way to the back of the arrangement. I never say it is my favorite color, yet at the garden center, shirts, and in painting I tend to choose those colors.

The latest Somerset Studio magazine also showed quite a lot of these colors, Aubergine. When one uses that word it sounds a lot more beautiful and purple. Eggplant sounds nice also. I have one more prepared canvas with lavender, I will probably do that today and maybe add some red. See if I can get a different look.


On the left of this painting I used a mirror cut out of a decorating mgazine and stamped the image of the birds on the mirror, I also colored the mirror with colored pencils. There is stamped tissue paper in the background and a napkin used. I was inspired by lilacs yeserday by a artist using them in her work. I see now that I could breakup the lines on my words with a tiny leaf.

Good Morning Emelie! I sure do like the lilacs and other florals on this one. Actually I like all the layers of the background. Your faces are getting better with each painting!
