Weekly Challenge- Purple & Green

This week's challenge was inspired by my lavender plants which are just starting to bloom and my favorite color with purple; green!  I love these two colors together and hope to see some really stunning art with them!
You see these colors together often in nature......
"Wild Iris" 
"Spring Tulips"

And definitely in the Imagination.....




"Annabel Lee"

"Dame Elizabeth Taylor"

The possibilities are Endless!
 "Loves to Shop"

"Swan Tea"

(Click the links near the photos for more info on each one)

Guidelines are in the right sidebar >>>
I can't wait to see your perfectly purple and gorgeously green creations!

Great color combination Stephanie! This should be fun, and interesting to see what everyone comes up with.

I can see doing a new color combo every week...that could keep us going forever!

Hey Stephanie,

You may have just kick started my return to the art world. That is, right after I mow my yard! Here's my entry and how I made it:

So sorry I have been away for so long - I had major surgery in March so I had to put a few things on hold for awhile. I'm slowly getting back into the swing, so here's my "purple and green," compliments of my garden.
