METALLIC SKY BLUE
Viviva's Metallic Sky Blue, the last of the Spring Collection, is again the interesting blend of iridescence and transparency. I experimented with layering Metallic Sky Blue over Slate Black, from the Viviva Colorsheets original set of colors to create this image of one of the gazing balls in the Chihully Garden and Glass exhibit at the Seattle Center. Had my watercolor skills been better, it may have been very successful, but in a quick sketch, this was a challenge outside my reach. Yet I learned a little more about painting glass along the way and this challenge is about learning, trying new colors, pushing my limits. With that in mind I would say this was a useful experiment with a fun color, Metallic Sky Blue.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
