Pink and Blush Colored Paintings

I've been a bit obsessed with the color pink--which is not a good thing when it comes to the likelihood of a painting having universal appeal--much less commercial appeal.  It is common knowledge among artists that pink paintings don't sell. Just look in any artists' closet.

And, I don't care.  I use pink because it signifies softness and the feminine.  Because I'm trying to express mood without "mood".  Because there is a lightness about pink which is uplifting.  Because pink--the lighter blush shade of pink--is a quiet, calming color.  Because pink is fleshy and emotional and human. 

I feel like I'm on a mission lately. To show how pink works in your home spaces.  And how my pink paintings say a lot with very little.
