A Violet Day

It rained on and off almost all day. Then the sun peeked behind the hills and put on a glorious show painting the evening sky shades of yellow, orange and purple with brazen strokes….

Violet colour prompts us to escape from ordinariness and daily routine, and creates a philosophical mood. It is no coincidence that its tints can be seen regularly in the interiors of different temples and devotional items of the past and modern epoch. For many artists it is a symbol of an insight moment and inspiration.
