May - Creative Colour Challenge

The colour Pink was selected by Louise Gale for this months Creative Colour Challenge. I love pink, it is one of my favourite colours. The colour of love, romance and for me it is a very calm and relaxing colour.

As I was playing around with ideas for my piece for this challenge the song “Pink” by Aerosmith came along like a little ear worm. Not that I am an Aerosmith fan but the lyrics “pink is the colour of passion” kept going around in my head every time I thought about my pink creation. So I thought, why not run with that? It certainly is very pink ... LOL!

Art:- Reason and Passion

Acrylic and metallic paints. Textured with tissue paper and modelling paste. I also created a stencil effect with silver spray paint over lace. Sketch of a sexy lady looking very passionate. The quote in the picture is a snippet from On Reason and Passion by Kahlil Gibran.

"Among the hills, when you sit in the cool shade of the white poplars, sharing the peace and serenity of distant fields and meadows -- then let your heart say in silence, "God rests in reason." And when the storm comes, and the mighty wind shakes the forest, and thunder and lightning proclaim the majesty of the sky -- then let your heart say in awe, "God moves in passion." And since you are a breath in God's sphere, and a leaf in God's forest, you too should rest in reason and move in passion."


  1. Fabulous! Wow that quote is amazing! I LOVE it :)

  2. What a great exploration of pink! I really like how well pulled together your composition is.

  3. Lots of yummy layers in this--very pretty!

  4. Absolutely stunning piece!! xx
