Original Pink

This cascading wall of ivy covers an entire side of a garage down the alley from my house.  The colors were gorgeous this year and swept me away.  The pink silks came off the shelf in the workroom.  Right now I can't get enough of pink.  But, look at all the variation in the colors of this vine, delicious mix of pink, deep pinks to purples, greens to gold.  I am awed and inspired by color splendor in the natural world.  Sometimes when you look more closely you find unexpected appeal in a color mix that in life you're taught 'don't wear those colors together',' those colors clash' or those colors as in pinks and blue have certain connotations - baby colors - that forbid putting them anywhere else.  I am intrigued with the unexpected, the contrary and am moved to work it in fiber.   There is more here and I'm not done.
