The holidays brought new inks (not that I need an excuse.)
A couple were gifts to me, and a couple were gifts to Mitchell
(he goes for shimmers and glitters, and I should have predicted this,
because he is also a tassel man!)
Of the lovely new colors below (and I have another couple pages coming)
I want to talk about the purple smack dab center!
I didn’t know I was a purple lover, but if you saw the inks I buy most (other than my workhorse waterproofs) they are mostly grey, green, and purple!
And I thought I’d found the absolutely only purple a gurl could ever want by Robert Oster,
Bishop to King, then at Christmas bought a second by him, Cosmic Swirl.
Omigoddess, I’ve become a purple gurl!
Obviously, they are both gorgeous.
Bishop to King (right above) has a much more blue-purple presence; when hit with water separates into beautiful blues and even turquoise.
Cosmic Swirl is an lovely sheening ink that is just a drench of pure purple.
Heaven in a box… seriously, these two colors are the colors of the heavens!
Below, on the occasion of the first full “Wolf” moon of the decade,
I painted a lovely full moon in Cosmic Swirl, and
said I imagined a world without the crap that is going on now.
We can do so much better.
Do you know the difference
between purple and violet?
I always think of violet as being on the blue end of purple…
Purple being that balanced mix of red and blue, a purr-fect secondary color.

Me… why I journal!
