Colour, Ariane’s drawing challenge, redirected thru Barbara Bee

November 9, 2014

I was walking around the garden and contemplating the challenge when it occurred that the garden is still a rainbow of colour.

So, for some inspiration, I gathered that rainbow and brought it indoors.

And from that rainbow came this:

A little collage, wild colour painting with a tiny gold bird hidden in the rainbow.

And now this little vibrant orchid, (one of my kaleidoscope cards), is for Our Rose, Ariane, our original host, who suffered a house fire this week. All our thoughts are with you sweetie, hope everything turns out alright.

      Hi Barbara. Thank you so much. I was surprised too because I went out into the garden thinking, “Hmm, let’s just see”, and never expecting all this. 😀

    Such vibrant leaves, flowers and rosehips — especially when placed in juxtaposition to each other!

      I thought so too Debra, I was really surprised how wonderful it looked together like this. 😀
