Theme 30: Purple Passion

How you choose to interpret the theme is completely up to you. It simply needs to be tasteful – no pornography or messages of hate here. When you sit down to create, you cannot think about how people will or will not receive your work. You are required to simply enjoy the act of creating.

I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it. ~ Alice Walker

“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple, With a red hat which doesn't go and doesn't suit me, And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves, And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter." ~ Jenny Joseph quote

Important Guidelines

The work submitted must be something you have created and/or worked on between the time the theme was revealed and the Thursday unveiling. Please submit your response to no later than end of day Wednesday, August 12th if you would like it to be posted on Thursday, August 13th. OR send me a link to your response to include in the comments section of the post.

With your response please include:

1. Your name - either first name, shop name or both.

2. The name of your piece (if you choose to give it one)

3. Something you'd like to share (process of creation, idea behind piece) if you'd like to share anything. Please limit this to 2-3 sentences

4. The shop and/or blog links you'd like to include

5. Two photos of your piece or of each of the pieces (3x5 or 4x6 and 72dpi or a max of 96dpi - if you need any help with that please don't worry I'd be happy to help!)

Most importantly, let passion guide you!

I love that Jenny Joseph quote! I already have a hat for my crazy-old-ladyhood and am looking forward to it greatly! Purple and eccentricity go so well together! :)

Oh, I love purple! I hope life will let me play this time. Love the first quote also. I would be curious to know how many artists favorite color is purple?

Oh, one of my favorite colors! I can't wait to see this collection. Some of my favorite TSTs have been the ones centered around a particular color theme--the visual impact is incredible. Looking forward to it! :)

Purple is, has always been, and will always be my favorite color. I can't wait for Thursday.
