Purple Palette

Victorian Purple. From Benjamin Moore.

I finished painting the second coat of Victorian Purple on our home's four outside doors yesterday. I think it is rather beautiful. This is our "side" door; the door we use most often:

I liked the way the color looked so much I decided to paint a small table in the backyard.

Minutes after painting the table I noticed our pink wheelbarrow (So much depends upon a pink wheelbarrow!) looking a bit forlorn. I painted it, too, Victorian Purple.

And I saw that Victorian Purple was good. Beautiful. And I said, "What else needs to be painted Victorian Purple?" And I saw our Garden Oar and I said, "Let this, too, be painted."

And it was so. And I saw everything that I had painted, and behold, it was good. It was beautiful.

What is beautiful in your life? Please share with me.

If you would like to fill your home with beautiful photographs, or need a portrait, a wedding photographed or if you are an interior designer and need photographs of your projects, contact me for a consultation.

Drawing on that degree in Art History, a passion for telling stories, and years working as a portrait and documentary photographer (And owning an Art Gallery) helps me bring a heightened sensitivity to my photography. Let's make the world a more beautiful place!
