The bae and I went on a short trip to Victoria last week. Our lives have been hectic the past few months so it was refreshing to have time just for us while exploring a new place.
My favorite part of the trip was our visit to the Victoria Butterfly Gardens and The Butchart Gardens. I was so inspired by all of nature’s offerings. The colors, the smells…spring is definitely here and I am so grateful.
Orange You Glad
Bright orange top and white pants or warm orange with a black skirt…great color combinations inspired by this beautiful butterfly.
White pants paired with a bright orange top for brunettes like myself…a perfect color combination inspired by nature.
The pink, orange, yellow ombre on this tulip is EVERYTHING.
Pink, the color of fun, youth and innocence. The flowers agree that pink is a great color for spring.
Pink and silver make a great combination. Try pairing a pink top with silver accessories for a feminine touch.
I love this flower called ‘The Bleeding Heart’. The way the flowers are lined up in front of one another reminds me of my family of origin – my parents, my sisters and I.
Pale pink looks great by itself just like the petals in these tulips.
Another natural ombre of white to pink.
Purple All Over
Purple is one of my favorite colors. I love the depth and mystery that purple offers.
Bright purple is a trendy color to wear. You’ll be gifted with ultimate confidence when you wear it out on the town.
The mix of white and purple on this tulip is gorgeous. Imagine a purple dress with white shoes and a white clutch…gorgeous.
I love the mix of this deep purple and pink. Imagine a wonderful gemstone necklace with pink and purple gemstones…so beautiful.
I came away from the gardens with my eyes and heart wide open. I have always gravitated towards the humble and quiet beauty of nature.
I’d like to think I approach my art the way nature approaches the seasons. Nature does what it does. It doesn’t seek approval or admiration. It grows, blooms and dies because of a deeper, innate purpose of life itself. As an artist, it’s difficult to write, sing, dance, play music, design, dress and generally be creative particularly when people around you are unable to appreciate your work or understand your vision. At the end of the day, I do what I do for myself so I can honor this gift of yearning for creation.
