Lavender Lingerie

What? You thought the sky was blue?

I promised you the perfume of color.

Pulse points strategically scented.

Music to dance to.

And rhythms...relationships.
The promise of purple is transcendence. (Oh yes. Click on that link) [ Oh dear, post publish note: click on the minislip on that link...see on the left of the first picture. The sand and lavender. The direct link keeps going to the basque.] We're wearing lavender lingerie. Spritzing the scent of violet. A first layer carefully chosen because it is important to begin with the end in mind. Remember contemplation? The impact of the piece? Mystery, tension, resonance and return? We want flow and tension. We want boldness and subtlety. We want to sustain a pace, but offer pause as well. This requires setting up vibrations and color connotations. That shimmer that you see in the silk, the sand next to the lace? We want that. And we'll have it. You can bet on that. Oh yes, it is a must. You'll see that sand and silver beckoning, trees and sky in lucent radiance. Throughout the piece, these hints of sky will lie upon a log, a branch, a frond. You'll spy a peek or two. The scent will pull you in. It will energize at times, or convince you to linger, depending on where you find it and in what quantity. This painting must have allure, subtle persistent attraction. Offer a taste to the connoiseur, something, something of desire. When we're done, all clothed and fully dressed, you may not know exactly why, but your eyes will want that lavender silken sky.

The "perfume of color" shot is really nice. Starting to involve me...

Yes, the sand and lilac is gorgeous together. Sadly not available, because they HAD me. Time to go in search of cheap knockoffs in sand and lilac. Maybe a suit, so it's not hidden. Hmm, I own a lilac shift, and a sand suit... I do a lot of colorful combos, but I never thought to put them together. Monday! Lingerie-and-painting-inspired suit!



Janice C. Cartier said...

That's my favorite shot too. oooh, Monday suit will be gorgeous!!! I like that.

Looks like it's a lot of fun to be smooshing around the paint like you do, and making all those neat shapes and colors.

One of these days, I'm going to have to seriously get into oils (and not just fart around like I've done before).
