The colors, shapes, and textures of flowers always seem to be telling a story.
This is why flowers have been enjoyed not just for their sensory delights but also for their symbolic meanings.
Violet is the flower of modesty, innocence, loyalty, and faithfulness.
~ The Blue Violet is the flower of intuition and spirituality
~ The Purple Violet is the flower of magic and confidence
~ The Pink Violet is the flower of curiosity, delicacy, and blissfulness
Color can influence our emotions, our actions and how we respond to various people, things and ideas.
Much has been studied and written about color and its impact on our daily lives.
~ Purple symbolizes royalty, magic, mystery.
Silk has a magical charm and a mesmerizing quality and it was but natural for me to use this as my canvas.
The abstract series has been created using brushes but without using gutta or resist.
This allows the dyes to travel freely across the silk and the results surprise and excite me every time.
The process is very intense and I have to be quick to get in as much detail as I can before the dyes dry.
There are no second chances in this process.
