Orchids. Purple Cone Flowers. The cone flowers are growing in the backyard, the orchid has not bloomed yet, but appears to be headed that way. My trippy, psychedelic plant art based on photographs. Run through my process. And these are the results.
The purple is a current thing for me, thanks in large part to Zengirl. She’s been blasting off on the purple. Getting a lot of high frequency creativity coming out of that girl. She’s, in short, exploding creatively. And the purple seems to be playing a part, helping out.
I got to confess, it usually gives me an energy boost to stare at the purple, blue, indigo group of colors. Higher chakra colors. Not sure why that is, but I’ve been digging working in those colors.
And I like the darker tones too. Deeper. Richer. With the orchid, it’s very velvety smooth. An oil painting-like quality. With the purple cone flower, there’s some of that, plus what I describe as crystalization, or just crystal forms. An inner light pervades both.
But, the real question, as always, is what do you see?
