My wall sculpture "Psychedelic Starburst" was included in this awesome Artfire Collection called "Purple Passion", curated by Prankearts. Be sure to check out Prankearts studio on Artfire, he has some really cool paintings.
When I was finished, I felt so......ugh. For the first couple of days, I looked at these colors with skepticism every time I went outside, but by the third day I noticed that I was averting my eyes whenever I walked up the porch steps. Well, that's not a good sign! By the fourth day, when I would approach my "tastefully" painted porch railings, I'd start dragging my feet on the ground like they weighed 1,000 pounds and would actually moan and groan and throw my hands in the air. These are not good signs!
So I hightailed it to the paint store, got a gorgeous purple, dark teal, and cerulean blue and proceeded to paint everything as bright as possible. Oh yeah, that's better!! My friends think I need a painting intervention, but even they agree that sage and cream just aren't me. I'm sure my neighbors raised some eyebrows, but I'm used to that by now, as a matter of fact, sometimes I do things just to raise those eyebrows!
I painted my kitchen in some wild oranges and reds, which left some of my visitors speechless, (my kitchen glows when the light shines through the windows) but thought, well I'll paint my dining room in some neutral normal color to balance it out. I don't even know how it happened exactly, but somehow, I ended up with a fuschia, maroon, orange and red pyramid on my wall. Seriously, I don't even know how it happened, I went into a color trance of some kind....
I might as well face it, me and neutral tasteful colors just don't go together. I'm starting to become suspicious that I may never grow up. Oh well, colors that make me go "Wheee!" are better than colors that make me go "ughhhhh" so to all those people with their raised eyebrows.......Take That!!!
Maybe I'll put up some pictures after I tackle spring cleaning. Oh noooooo, spring cleeaaanning!!!!!!
I won't think about that right now.
Have a great day!
