But! now there is an opportunity to be challenged! I am not very interested in overtly following trends but there is something of a thrill in taking on a difficult subject (orchid?) and making it work in something beautiful.
I remember many years ago working on a commission for a very highly respected interior designer in Chicago. One of the women on her team was examining a tapestry I was presenting, and landed her beautifully manicured nail on a spot of color in the piece and uttered, with barely disguised contempt, "Pink?" It really was a kind of orchid/fuschia pink, as I recall.
Yet what would this piece be without it? So I am going to play with this one. Slip it in, here and there. Use it as a witticism, or a little hint of passion. Watch this space.
