I “finished” the painting I was working on for my mom this afternoon…the one with the pink and purple flowers…
I think it is safe to say I went a little overboard with the pink/purple…. What is it about these colours that I am so drawn to them? Not just when painting, but in all aspects of my life. Looking around my apartment, I notice that the majority of my wardrobe falls into this category, as well as my travel mug, my iPod, my pencil case, my school binders, my nail polishes, even my coyboy hat is pink! This is kind of embarrassing… So I googled it. And our dear friends at google had this to say about the colours pink and purple:
“Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance.”
“Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being
the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is
believed to be the ideal color. Purple is the color most favored by artists.”
Alright, well that answers a few questions. I certainly do like the feelings that pink provides, and purple is the ideal color, and most favored by artists. So with that, I’m gonna keep abusing using
Do you like the Before or After better? Should I calm down the pink background a bit or leave it as is? Right now, I’m leaning towards redoing the background and maybe throwing in some very subtle light browns/greens.
Are you drawn to a certain color? Do you happen to know what that color represents?
