Roy G Biviolet

Violet is the color to find for this month's Searching For Roy G Biv, hosted by Jennifer Coyne Qudeen and Julie Booth.  Here are a few of the violets I found:



 wood violets - A bit literal, it's true, but no one can deny they're violet - by definition!



Book of Dreams, second page spread (monotype with mixed media)



downy lobelia



untitled watercolor



passion flower



The Blood Dimmed Tide (monotype with mixed media)



cat mint

    1. Thanks, Mary Ann, for all the kind words... I'm taking your phrase "bed of violets" as my metaphor for life this summer...

  3. I love how you alternated natural violets with your beautiful and mysterious art pieces. That passion flower is amazing as is the Book of Dreams image. Thanks for playing along!
