what do you think of these colors?

I just adore color. It really is one of my reasons to make art. I found myself giving unsolicited advice yesterday to a neighbor painting the facade of his new restaurant here in New Harmony, to change a tiny little detail in a scroll color -- and prefaced it with the fact that I am a Colorist. (oh, please! I can be a bit high handed, I am sure).

Here are some proposed new colorways for my Auricula Ribbon. I want to do it in a narrower width -- maybe 7/8" -- and think the round flowers will look like punchy polka dots at that scale.

Please weigh in with comments as to which colors you like best!

  1. I like the middle one. I love pink and green.

  3. I like all three, but the third the best. I would like the second one the best if the yellow weren't so washed out. It's too much of a contrast with the other two flowers, but I would take rolls and rolls of any of them for free.... (tee hee)

  4. Laura, I love the first one. Perfect autumn colours, and the third one - very festive and would make a good series together with number 1!

  5. The first one has the same colors as the Suzani in turquoise and its coordinates.

    Votes are coming in on Facebook too -- thanks to everyone who has taken the time to consider this!

  6. I love the 3rd one because I'm a big lavender/purple fan and love dark backgrounds. However, it's a close tie with the 2nd one as I seem to be on a big pink/green kick with all of my needlework lately!
    They're all gorgeous :)
