Your lavender kick is making me quite giddy with happiness.
TINA CHOW...such a beautiful shade of BEAUTY!!! Thru the Prism the shade of Lavender is Spiritual Healing, Purification and Tranquility...all that Tina embodied towards the end of her Life.The color was Warhols' tribute to a dear friend who he guided to the crystals - she in turn left us the tiny output of her Spirit to promote ONE to an awareness of Spiritual Health thru her Crystal and Bamboo jewelry collection.Great choices in imagery by Warhol...oddly all were destined to embody tragedy to some degree!
LOVING this! Been listening to the Velvet Underground today in AW's honor!
Miss W. very good-it looks wonderful with black and white-and as has been suggested all month works well on Men and the lady as well.Zhush- of course you would be in the spirit with all the purples that pop up on your pages!
Swan, I need to do a post on her, I have been looking about for some of the interiors she inhabited to do it though. I think it is specific then based on what you say here that he used this color for the eyes-the windows to the soul. In his use of lavender often it was to juxtapose the color with tragic and disastrous images- the electric chair, knives. pgt
Your ode to lavender knows no bounds!! LOVE the Tina Chow - the eyes are mesmerizing.
These ones stand for the difference. I'm a real fan of all things lavender, for the scent and the colour... a plus mixed with navy blue!;-)
Andy Warhol was very good all around the palette, but was certainly a master of lavender. Curtis
Dear Gaye, the Tina Chow is wonderful. I have a Victorian button tub chair which needs recovering and after all your lavender posts I think that has to be the colour! Have a wonderful weekend xx
