Day 197 – Purple & Copper

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Ninety Seven

Purple is a dramatic color.

My grandmother Marguerite was a huge fan of purple. She commanded attention when she walked in a room – the purple outfit helped but it was mostly her zest and zeal that caused heads to turn even into her 80’s.

Look for those times when you can stir up the color pallet – purple is making a comeback and with it passion and drama. I was feeling a bit purple today – and I never, ever want to forget to be passionate and dramatic. I may follow in my Gammy’s footsteps!

Until tomorrow.


Day 197 was created in watercolors, acrylics, graphite, and metallics.

  1. Purple is my favorite color. My sister thinks it’s all I see. She’s a little right. I also see colors that go well with purple.

    1. Stacia,
      I wish you could see this image better – for some reason the metallics do not scan well and create a weird shadow no matter what I do with the scanner. The original is so much prettier – maybe I’ll try taking it with my new camera. And people seem to love purple – I may need to make some more purple apples!

    1. Thanks David,
      I’m always fascinated at the pieces that specifically strike different people. That is what I love about art. When it speaks to you – you hear it!
