Delicious Pink

I think I must love pink.
My eldest son made a remark yesterday about how much pink there was in the room. It took me by surprise, "what pink?"
Did he mean the fluffy fairy lights I have hanging in the window?Or did he mean the other fairy lights I have in a vase?
Maybe he meant the pink chair? Oh look! there a pink glass bottle there too.I think he must have been referring to the little room where we keep the washing machine and tumble dryer - silly me!
I must admit after all this evidence I do have a partiality for bright pink, after all I did buy some more pink wool for my crocheted blanket. It really is as bright as it looks here!
Have I been painting recently?
Yes I have. This is a bath panel and I'm using acrylic paints. I'm finding it difficult because I haven't used them properly on a big painting for about 2 years. I've got so used to small watercolours that it's like learning all over again!

I love all the pink you have in your room! I'm a pink fan - not the soft, muted pinks, but the strong ones like in your pictures! And that's going to be a fun painting!! :) Silke

I don't know what you're on about, what pink? Lol!
I must admit, I love pink also.
The colour is so calm and cheering.
The tiles you have on the wall, I LOVE'EM! Wooo, goes well with pink!
Glad you liked the video, thank you!

Thanks Silke, it's amazing how much pink I had when I started looking!

Thanks Julie, I'm glad you like my colours too :o)

Have to say I'm not the biggest fan of pink, but each to his own! That's a pretty huge painting your're working on there Jess - you'll soon get back into the swing of it. :)

I like all the touches of pink in your home it looks bright and cheerful and homely.
Is the mermaid panel for your bath?
Hmm.. seeing your crochet has made me want to crochet something again. :)

Hmm, think I'm going to go listen to some Pink Floyd !

Hahaha...this cracks me up! Pink is always a dilemma, isn't it? It's pretty, but you don't want people to think you're too girlie. It's sweet, but too much sweetness makes the boys cringe! So good for you, Jess, if you love it, I say show it off!! (^__^) oxx

Thanks Gretel, it's taking me a while, I'm so rusty it's like starting for the first time! It's interesting how different peole have different preferences isn't it? I wonder how our preferences develop?

Thanks Karen, yes it is! I've been wanting to paint on it for years and thought "right then NOW is the time!"

Sounds like a very good idea Owen!

Thanks Amalia, I have a frend who refuses to wear any pink whatsoever out of principle. What a shame I say! :o)

Can you have too much pink?

Jessie said...

"Never!" - thanks Ivy! :)

What a fun post:) I will have to do a pink hunt in my house, probably most of it will be my daughters:)
I am more of a blue/green fanatic

Julia Guthrie said...

Hehe...I love all your pink things :) Especially all the fairy lights...a house needs plenty of fairy lights!

Great idea to paint the bath panel too! :)

Btw...I'd be more than happy to pull a tarot card for you hon :)
Do you want me to send you the reading privately? Ans do you have a question, or is it just a 'what do I need to know at this time?' question? :)
