Summer Of Colour - Pink

We're through another week... where's it gone?  Summer Of Color  (Kristin's American spelling) this week is PINK.  Not my favourite colour for using in art, although I have, on occasion.

I am fortunate to have a fabulous view of sunsets from my kitchen window and deck, and often they are incredibly pink.  Such as....



... that inspired this  (although not my best work).

View From The Deck 

The garden also has some wonderful pinks.

My favourite oleander
However, pink lends itself more to jewellery and beads...




 So, I guess there's a certain amount of inspiration in 'pink'.

    Terrie, Netty, Joanna, Jen, Kristin, and Sharon... glad you like the pieces and thank for your encouragement.

    Lesley... Love that word 'pinkilicious'

    Noemi... I am sooooo lucky, I agree. Perhaps you could paint a temporary transparent view on your window with acrylics?

    Barry... Nice to see a 'bloke' in there. Not being too hard, just truthful. Thanks tho'
