The one thing that always amazed me is how my brain is translating my imagination, my mood, my desires, everything really, into a visual combination of all different colours that magically appear in each of the cells of the fibre I am working on.
In all the years I have been painting and dyeing, I have come to know how absolutely futile it is, really, to ask anybody what their favourite colours are. Favourite colours have a habit of changing. Not only because fashion colours are imprinted onto your brain every time the season changes, but most importantly because , well simply , because the seasons change, our outlook changes, things happen and we are like Alice in Wonderland looking at the world around us in a totally different light and colour.
For instance, I have never seen myself as a particularly sweet pink girl, not even the barbie pink, but you know that blush rose kind of light pink. Still, all of a sudden this delicate colour, that I created using the pigment of a bolus mushroom, has become my absolute favourite these last few weeks, together with a very sweet duck egg blue…Now, what does this mean? I know that when I was quite sick, even without me knowing that I was at that time, my dyeing was dark, grey, muted, almost as if my senses knew before I ever scientifically acknowledged my physical “un-wellbeing”..So, I wonder what blush rose and duck egg blue translates to..So, I looked it up: “Pink is the color of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted. For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood.” Hmm, that makes sense: I am happy, but overworked..lol..
Pink is also said to encourage friendliness while discouraging aggression and ill-will, that’s why some prisons have painted their walls pink, although I have no idea what the inmates thought of that decorating feature , nor if they immediately had a positive change of behaviour….
Brands that have been identified with pink are Victorias Secret and Pepto Bismal…now what does that mean eh? ..lol
Bright pinks are said to increase heart rate and blood pressure and encourages action and confidence…but what does blush pinks do? Encourage dreaming and imagination?
On to the duck egg blue: Well, blue itself is said to calm, sedate, cool and help with intuition and is the colour of the Throat Chakra, speech and hearing. I would say that the grey gorgeous misty duck egg blue could be identified with softness, dreaming and your alice in wonderland fairytales. Hmm, are my colour choices telling me to dream ( so ...eh...sleep) more? …
Enjoy looking and virtually cuddling these amazingly soft and shiny magical tops and snaffling some to hug in real life :-)
