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.
