Rose and Lavender Mountain Galaxies

Rose Mountain Galaxy, acrylic on board, 10″x8″, 2023 ~SOLD
In both the paintings in this post, I worked to create a unique scene inspired by various ways that the colors pink and lavender can be seen in nature while thinking of Winter. I’ve once seen a beautifully pinkish, violet night sky filled with incredible stars. I stood under it and wondered at the sight, ‘How could the sky feel pinkish at night? Magic!’. I’ve seen snow capped peaks appear a glowing pink due to the illusion created by the suns setting and rising rays. And I’ve seen evergreens draped in that beautifully colored hue as well. Winter provides unique opportunities for enjoying brief moments of spectacular colors. With my painting I wanted to capture that by combining various real inspirations into a fantastical landscape from my dreams.
The painting below is inspired by the same concept at the Rose Colored one but with keeping Lavender shades as the driving inspiration for the color palette.
