Summer of Color 3 - Hot Pink and Orange!

Hot Pink and Orange

I started with this gelli plate print I made a month ago. I used hot pink, gold and red acrylic paints and a Martha Stewart brayer with a flower roller. There was no orange so, I colored in some of the white spots with orange highlighter.

It's a bit overcast so I had a hard time getting the orange to pop out.

I have been experiencing many unhappy people, unhappy experiences and overall stress. This song popped into my head and it made sense we all need to relax understanding life is like a dream. Life is hard but it all works out. Like my Aunt Toni says, "It's all in divine order."

 I wrote the words on the paper with a Micron pen and drew a bit with a white gel pen. 

Strawberry Fields Forever
Living is easy with eyes closed misunderstanding all you see.
It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out, it doesn't matter much to me.
Let me take you down cuz I'm going to Strawberry Fields...
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.



  1. Hey, I love this one! It fits well to my own one, where I also used words from a Beatles song.

  2. great print and that song is my era too! perfect for those down days.

  3. This piece is wonderful. I love the little white flowers mixed in with the vibrant colors.
