Wednesday Vignettes: Rainbow / Violet

...continuing FINISHING the rainbow project! This started as a project during California's safer at home / shelter in place orders. Looking back at all the pictures i've taken of my garden, and finding a rainbow of colors. I was also inspired by one of my favorite artists, Philippa Stanton at 5ftinf and her book "Conscious Creativity", which talks about color collecting, texture and a ton of other things.

Inspired by her book, creativity, Instagram and with a lot of time on my hands, i went and found all the colors of rainbow in my garden. For today, here's VIOLET, the final rainbow color:

(that was legit the sky one evening... no filter!)

(dearly beloved and departed smoke bush)

Violet is red-purple, which i also had to look up.

And so, the rainbow project comes to an end. My apologies if the last few weeks of Wednesday vignettes were predicable... but i really wanted to find something positive out of the craziness these last few months. When i first thought about this project, i was hoping that by early June, we'd be on the other side...


  1. A nice collection of photos to close your project with. Love the sunset pic!

  2. Still on "this side", unfortunately, but at least we have our gardens.

    Lovely colors, enjoyed your series.

  3. The rainbow project was an inspired idea. One year while teaching a design class I made a photo collection of the many different colours, tints, hues of plants that I had. For the colour theory portion we sat down and arranged them into myriad plant pairings. It was a huge success and a lot of fun.
