the power of purple
When you paint the landscape purple is always there to great us. You don't have to look far. She is always there. She has a feel-good presence. Depending on whether purple/violet is warmer (leaning toward magenta) or cooler (leaning towards blue) she not only means different things, but works very differently in a painting.
True confessions: A life-long obsession, I wear purple and live with purple. I may have gone too far when recently I painted my bedroom purple, which adds to the living room being painted violet and I just realized that my bathroom that has magenta glazed with blue violet. (My patient, loving husband is learning to love purple.)
