Violet

I once asked Beau what color he thinks I am. Purple is what he said. I had never thought of myself as purple. I didn’t decorate with it and rarely wore it. But right as he said I was it was as if the word spoken made it so. Here I am purple to this day.  Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 1.29.17 PM

I discovered this quote by L.M. Montgomery the other day and had to paint it.  It’s just the type of thought I want my head to be full of.

What color do you think you are?

Or what flower or stone?

  1. Whenever I ask people what color they think I am, they always say blue. I am in love with every shade of blue so this doesn’t surprise me much :-) I’m glad you are purple. I have a special love for purple things so it doesn’t surprise me that we are friends :-) -Mary

  2. Anonymous: you link to a post from four years ago…soon after Beau said I was purple and I was really into it :)

  3. I think I’m a strawberry, or a peach, or a rose-gold color. Josh said I would be melon colored! Love it. I love violets and Amethysts because I was born in February and they are my birth flower/stone.

  4. I’ve always thought of you as purpley-violet or a pink/orange grapefruit!
    I think others need to tell you what they see in you, but if I could choose, based on what I love and think does fit in a way…
    I’d be a protea flower. Because they can be closed tight to protect or opened wide and spikey for life, plus they are so soft and fuzzy and tall!
    I’ve always thought I am eventide… all the colors, exploding, at the end of the day.
