I think it doesn't look bad at all considering there are no artificial lights on in the studio for this photo.
Are you eyeballing that wall? That pink wall? It's not pink. It's purple. It's soft crocus purple. Lilac like. Actually, the paint chip was called, "Goddess." That pretty much sold me on it. I wanted something light so the room wouldn't darken. I wanted something coloured so the walls wouldn't look stark. I wanted something that would look food with dark coffee brown. I wanted a colour that my art wouldn't disappear on (so I opted out of green for that reason).
It's a colour that is no where else in the house. In fact, it's a colour from the opposite end of the coulourwheel from most of the walls in my house. I like it. When I walk in here, I walk into a different space completely.
I actually don't like showing this wall colour off. I'm having a love/hate thing going on with it. I like the way it makes me feel, but I don't like the way it looks. It's hard to explain. I suppose it will only be a backdrop for other things. It is very clearing and relaxing. It's not stimulating like chartreuse would have been. Trust me - all my stash will colour and clutter up the room with eyecandy, so I think this is enough. It isn't earthy though. But since it's just one wall, it will take an hour to change it if I find something I like better. Good gosh - what a lot of time spent contemplating a wall. I mean seriously!!
Other than that, I'm waiting on a few more images to approve for the show in January. September is my deadline. It's been an interesting ride. It's taken a different path than I had expected. It's all very feminine. Well, all the fibre artists are women. That's not surprising, but I think nearly all the pieces really show a feminine flair to them. Now I need to come up with a name for the show. Hmm... maybe it'll come to me in a dream. : )
