Photo and Question of the Day...

 
Roses from my friend Sally's garden always inspire me, but especially at this time of year when everything is so gray and stark.  I like to use this photo to inspire paint colors that give my projects a fresh injection of color.
What color palette are you drawn to for spring?

  3. Lovely photo! There are so many colors that love for spring, but I never tire of the aqua and green color combination--for any season.

  6. How pretty...I might like to paint that photo!

    In spring, I am drawn to the colors of macaroons in a French patisserie. Weird, I know....I even like the browns....

  7. This spring, I am loving bright colors paired with either neutrals or metallics... it's so unexpected and fresh looking to me.
