I’ve thought more on the topic of pink.
Pink often gets put in what I think is a narrow category: pretty, girlie, delicate. My first mosaic tried to point out how current fabrics are taking pink beyond that. The fuchsias can be loud. The lines can be harsh and angled. The subjects can be fierce, like rhinoceroses. Or exotic like zebras and maidens and peacocks. It can be, and is, a lot of things. Maybe even wild.
My second mosaic tried to capture that more traditional category of pink. I tried to be delicate. Subtle. Demure.
I ended up in a loud, berryful conversation with Anna Maria and Denyse. I tried so hard to get back to petals and softness and the stereotypical girlie pinks, but they ran away from my searching mouse.
So here you have it. Pink: rich berries, earthy peaches, and a palette that refuses to whisper.
