Periwinkle

I will never be early to color trends. I have no idea what the "hot" colors are right now, but I must admit I have a current color obsession: Periwinkle!

I've been looking at a lot of art online lately, and this color keeps popping out at me. Wow!

I'm definitely incorporating it into my next new painting.



 Anna Archer, Sunlight in the Blue Room, 1891



 Cecil Beaton, Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, 1936

And speaking of Wallis Simpson, here's some of her periwinkle jewelry!



 Designed by Suzanne Belperron 



Bato Dugarzhapov. Unfortunately, I have no idea what it's called.



I almost forgot to include this one by John Singer Sargent. Love John Singer Sargent. Bedouins, c. 1905.
