a while ago, i did a painting with some hot pink-not a lot of hot pink, but just enough. it got a lot of interest at the gallery where it was housed and the feedback was always, ‘the client really likes the painting, but they just aren’t sure they can live with the pink.’
artists don’t pick colors to match the sofas of their collectors.
eventually, my painting sold and also graces the cover of encaustic art by jennifer margell.
i’m in love with hot pink, it still remains one of the first colors i reach for…it just makes me happy.
