Much Ado about Colour

It takes more knowledge of the color theory than a stroke of genius to put an attractive color palette together.  Is it more science than art or more art than science?  You decide.

A thoughtful assortment of cushions make for a very colorful living room:

I wonder if the colorful buildings in this lovely Italian town happened by chance or design:

Artist Love

Today I am honored to introduce two amazingly talented artists based here in tropical Singapore.

An artist who is very much inspired by nature, Agatha Hutton introduced me to oil painting, a world I thought would be dominated by geniuses and closed to ordinary souls.  Her talent is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and I very much adore her abstract paintings, which are incredibly magnetic with their bright pops of color against a diffused background.  Drop by here to learn and see more of her work.

Izzi seems to have done the impossible - combining two vastly different mediums - embroidery and penciled drawing - on the same canvas.  This first piece below draws me inexplicably.  You WILL want to see more of her work here.

Matchy Matchy

I have to admit that rarely do I feel inspired to make matching sets, except at the request of my clients.  They always felt a little too matchy matchy (forgive the pun) for my taste.  Hop over to see the last set I made here.  Wow, how long ago was that?!

And just very recently, I had the chance to work at matching sets again.  A friend who brought the gorgeous Imperiale bracelet home several months ago had a request for matching earrings.  See the result below:

Shortly after, I received a request for a pair of earrings to be created in the same color palette as this pearl and gemstone bracelet - a birthday present made about two years ago.  I added a subtle twist to the earrings gemstone palette and it turned out pretty refreshing.  To my pleasant surprise, the earrings received lots of love when I first posted the picture at my Facebook page
