Purple And Gold

This is a 9″x12″ mixed painting on stone paper covered wood cradle.  The sides are 1.5″ deep and are painted turquoise.

This painting is available HERE.

I wrote that title and then realized that these were my Elementary School colours.   The thing about  the gold used in school colours is that it usually not metallic but rather some very unattractive yellow(think dark mustard). This ugly yellow with purple ( my least favorite colour anyway) is not really a very nice look. Just saying.

Hopefully it works in my painting.

My high school colours were black and orange…not that I had any school spirit in high school…  I wore a lot of black and may have been seen garnishing bright orange lipstick or eyeshadow. The fact that these two ‘colours’ were seen together was entirely coincidental and should never have been mistaken as a  form of pride for my school.  (I was way to cool for that…ha, ha).

  2. Oh! This is gorgeous! The first thing that comes to mind when I see this painting is Japanese woodblock print. Those dark lines give it a whole new dimension and meaning. It is quite stunning! I hope you do more like this one.
