The Pink Lady
When I was little, my aunt was the coolest chick on the planet. She listened to rock music when most of my family listened to oldies. (Now, I actually like “oldies”, but that’s beside the point.) When she redecorated her apartment for the first time, I distinctly remember her color scheme of black and light pink splattered everywhere. Seeing with an artist’s eye, I thought this was one of the most gorgeous color combinations.
Pink is feminine and even somewhat romantic. Black is dark and mysterious. Later on in my life, I came to use this combo every so often in my work. Enter, The Pink Lady. Now, there are times, like many of us, I’m unsatisfied with my artistic ventures. I’m a psychotic perfectionist – so I toss things often. However, this one, I have to say I am quite proud of. I can confidently state this is one of my finest pieces to date. Even though it’s so simple, if you look closely enough you can spot fine detail.
As an adult, when I see pink now, I’m reminded of that rebellious stage in my aunt’s life and how much fun we had together. The colors even remind me of some of my friends.
Did you ever do something crazy to a room in your home? Did it stick or did you change it?
Have a pink Sunday!
