Three colors I love!

Quinacridone Gold


This is my favorite color in my watercolor palette and it is essential for me to have. There’s just something about it that makes me happy. And I don’t even like yellow. But I adore this.



Doesn’t matter the shade or the hue, I love purple. Always have. I have an enormous collection of purple yarn and fiber. Still looking for a really great purple ink for my pens, though.

Acid Green


I know, right? It’s so loud and obnoxious–and that’s why I love it. I can’t wear it, but I do love having it around.

It’s funny: I never thought I’d love color as much as I do.

    I wrote the first draft of my dissertation in Levenger’s Amethyst (and wore a Shaffer M down to an EB). These days, I like Private Reserve Purple Haze, which is a gorgeous pale lavender. I highly recommend the Goulet swatch website–on my monitor it’s pretty accurate, and then you can get samples for diiiirt cheap.

    SO much of my house is painted in slightly-greyed purple and shades of orange. (The rest is blues from the same family as the purple. The neon green is restricted to V.’s room.) I would never ever have guessed those colors for myself before I found them re-appearing everywhere!
