Drapes and Grapes

- by Lynne Reichhart

This week's theme: Purple

Purple is a complex colour. It is the combination of cool, calming blue and hot, stimulating red. The meanings and associations of the colour purple are equally dichotomous . It is the colour of royalty, mourning, spirituality, pride and wealth. Some spring flowers are purple and so are some of our bruises. Purple is a bold colour that not everyone can live with comfortably and is often associated with young girls and those that are creative or eccentric. No matter what you think of it, one thing is certain - purple always attracts attention.

Art: Drapes and Grapes by Artist Lynne Reichhart

Purple and cream still life of transparent draperies behind a pitcher, mug and grapes for a splash of more color.  Reflections in the glass add color.  That is the beauty of white - it takes on the colors around it beautifully!
