A New Palette

I am working on a stack of new postcards again as I am running low.  I started mixing ambers and browns with pinks and purples and ooooh, loving it so much!

I think all the pre-green prairie spring colors have absolutely inspired this.

Lily of the Valley...   waiting.

I have been noticing more pink in the skies at each dawn and each dusk.  I am surprised to feel a renewed passion and joy for these horizontal colour combinations.  After this batch I will be well past 200 'Wish You Were Here' prairie postcards.  There are no two alike.  There are colour combos I haven't even made yet.  Who knows how long I can make these and they continue to be 'uncharted' as far as my work goes.

These new mini-landscapes are not stitched yet - but what do you think about these colours!?  How do they make you feel?

I personally love how this set glows even though the colors are so soft and gentle.  : )

Happy Spring to you!

They do glow, and make me think of a soft sunrise.
