I created my own “Seigaiha” Japanese Wave Pattern for silk fabric. This is the red to purple design covered with fresh stems of Sequim lavender that will become silk scarves. I’ll be selling these during the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire at Purple Haze Lavender Farm July 19 – 21, 2013.
Question: Why do you wear red eye shadow?
Answer: Why not? I have been wearing red eye shadow for over 25 years. And, it isn’t easy to stay in stock. Back in 1988, I was so excited when I had a custom set of eye shadows made for me that were yellow, orange, and red with mica sparkles. Of course, I have newer shadows and sometimes blushes to don on my lids. They are the same set of colors that I wear today, sometimes magenta, pink, or coral instead of red to match my outfit.
But, why red? It could be the Japanese geisha look. It could be my war paint. It could because am a fiery Aries. It could be I love bright colors that inspire bees to seek out imperative pollen from radiant blooms. It could be that looking somewhat like a clown confuses people when I am so serious. It could be how the red makes my hazel eyes pop. It could be I delight in the double takes and smiles I get from people who find the world is full of wonder, variety, and unique forms of expression.
