"And Brown Loves Pink"

My commissioned Amy Ruppel painting has arrived! (Good timing, eh? I’ve had art on my mind a lot lately!)

I love Amy Ruppel’s work, so quite a while back I contacted her to commission a larger scale painting. I wanted some pink or orange in it, and then I left the rest up to Amy. The painting is titled “and brown loves pink”, it’s 18″x15″, and it has pink and orange, and I love it! Yippee!

I know I’ve been looking for a something to go above the sofa, but this isn’t it. I need to choose a more special spot for this one.

    Really, really lovely. I have always used pink in my decor and recently have been using orange. You are inspiring me to use pink, brown and orange. I read somewhere that representations of birds are supposed to be good feng shui – supposed to bring good fortune. Can’t wait to see where you hang it. Also can’t wait to see what you put above your sofa.

    Orangish-pink is one of my favorite colors! I love them mixed together than I do each color separately. I have a sapphire of exactly the color in this sweet painting. The color, in sapphire speak, is “padparadscha” — Sanskrit for lotus color.
