It is probably obvious by now that Blue/Orange is my favorite complementary color palette. Funny thing is I never liked the color orange, until I received an orange pumpkin soap dispenser at a luncheon and it discovered how fabulous it looks in my pale turquoise kitchen. It is now my permanent accent color.
As this miserable cold reaches the 1 week mark, the Cuties (vitamin C) are dwindling away. All of Milwaukee is sick!
My daughter made this vessel in a high school ceramics class. It is one of my favorite pieces because of its color and unusual shape. It was difficult for me to paint. I love it with these orange tulips, which have many more petals than your run-of-the-mill tulips. This bunch, from Trader Joe's, had what I call 2 "double Dutch" and one "triple Dutch"---two or three tulips on ONE stem! How exciting! (Can you tell I'm a gardener?)
