Many moons ago when I was in high school, by favorite color combination was peach and green. Hence, my junior prom dress was green, and my senior prom dress ended up being peach.
In my 20's, I still loved the color combination so much that I chose to do all my Christmas decorations in peach and green. My Christmas tree was decorated with off-white lacy things; gold ornaments; cream, peach, and pale green glass balls; and other girlie things.
Somewhere in my mid-20's, I switched my Christmas color scheme completely to embrace my new favorite color combination of plum, rose, and green. But deep down inside, if I see peach and green together it makes me happy.
When I was in the garden last week and saw the Abraham Darby rose blooming in front of the russet pink of the hydrangea, I took a photo of it. Little did I realize when I took the shot, that it was going to be peach and green--which I was very pleasantly surprised to discover when I was post-processing the shot.
I was so pleased that I decided to play with the shot and turn it into an art piece. So I combined the above photo with a sepia version of the texture below (it's a rock that's out in our garden):
Then I did some drawing with light and shadow on my digital tablet, and I eventually got a "colored pencil" piece that turned out like this:
I guess in a way, I've come back around to peach and green and Christmas time haven't I?
