Art Friday: All things pink




Art Friday: All things pink

I like pink  - its such a pretty feminine colour. 

I'm not alone with my love of pink, millions of little girls around the world love pink also, however, sadly, the feminist movement frowns upon girls if they are "too pink".

I do wear pink, but it tends to be the deep strong pink rather than the pale soft pink that a baby might wear. 

Are you a pink kind of girl? 

Here is a bit of fun with PINK!!
Fairies in art are often painted pink, perhaps to make them look delicate.

Chinese art often contains pink flowers. 

Monet
John William Waterhouse (above and below) often added pink to his paintings

As for a pink house, probably not!!
Susan Rios is quite the fan of pink and incorporates it into many of her paintings.

  1. Thank you for this lovely, lovely post. You are so right--girls now are taught to eschew this beautiful color--as they are taught to eschew their femininity. I love pink and so does our daughter. We are grateful to our marvelous Lord and Creator for making us (women) unique and special.

  2. You are so good at themed art posts, Jo! And you do collages also. I think they've become an addiction with me.

    Yes, I love pink, have always loved it. Pink, dusty rose . . . shades of pink by any name. And I treasure my everyday china pattern, Desert Rose.

    1. John William Waterhouse is also my favourite, I love his art and how he can make fabric and hair move in the wind. I don't have a lot of pink in my house, I tend to have more red, but i do like to wear it!

  8. Love the roses, they are my favourite flower. I like pink but like you it is usually a darker, deeper colour that I wear. Thanks for linking up at Good Morning Mondays. Blessings
