"Gah!!! Purple!!!" was the outcry heard around our house the past few days. Somehow I got infested with a blob of dioxazine purple artist oil paint which made itself known by showing up as huge streaks on my arm and hands. No sooner did I wash thoroughly than all of a sudden my thumb was stamping purple on everything it touched.
It was like a Dr Seuss story line…purple showing up on towels, countertops, keyboards. My hands would look totally clean one minute and the next be streaked with PURPLE! This went on for days!
I thought I found the mother-lode, a blob of paint on my shirt, but even after meticulously taking care of the culprit MORE purple would suddenly appear on my arm or fingers. This went on for days.
Finally, I thought the episode was over. No more purple apparitions; no more surprise paintings on unplanned surfaces and then, while washing a window, what should appear but long streaks of dioxazine purple artist oil paint, now a permanent feature of our white window sill. Gah!!!!

Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
