Soul Colors

Friday, December 05, 2008

If you asked me what color I saw my soul living in, I would tell you it was a heavenly teal-aqua-turquoise-teal-watery-milky-aqua-teal color. I imagine myself just floating endlessly through that color. ahhhhh

Except... well, I don't know. This year I've noticed a distinct color that keeps popping up as I paint. I don't intend to paint with this color, I just find myself doing it, again and again and again. It's odd because, I really never liked this color growing up. At all.








PINK. I can't stop. I have no idea what's wrong with me.

Another artist, Emily Balivet, pointed out to me that "Pink= emotion, creativity, marriage, friendship, beauty, compassion, relationships" and is "kinder, gentler then red/ Heart chakra."

Kinda neat, huh? I'm not sure if that's what's going on inside my head when I'm painting pink, but it sure sounds pretty, and I'm going to go with that. Maybe I'm just exploring my emotional side. :oD

It feels like this is what's going on in my head:


A fuzzy, swirly, electric pink blur that somehow reminds me of my childhood. (wooo 80s!)

    Pink is so pretty and feminine and comes in so many hues, shades and tints.

    Your paintings are beautiful times 10.
