Color Day by 11

Color Day 2013: Inspired by Artwork

I always lament not being able to paint. I tried and tried when I was in college, but much to my dismay (and my professor’s), I just couldn’t make it work. I felt at ease with printmaking, but the rich colors of oil paints always tug at my heart strings. So for today’s color day, I decided to take inspiration from one of my favorite painters, Charleston’s Lulie Wallace, and round up designs that remind me of one of her gorgeous paintings (above). I love all of the floral scenes Lulie paints, it gives me a chance to indulge in my love of bright pinks, greens and yellows. xo, grace

I love Lulie Wallace! Just purchased one of her beautiful paintings. I’m so in love with it :)!


late to this but I feel ya on the whole painting thing. I just can’t seem to do it either! printmaking is my love though :) and I have started painting envelope liners instead of printing them. baby steps!


rich colors happen in printmaking all the time! painting does not own great colors! just sayin’.
