Tantalizing Raspberry Blueberry colors remind me of yummy vanilla ice cream with Raspberry syrup and Blueberries sprinkled on top. The soft pink with fuchsia create a soft background for the blue-violet starbursts. Wear with all your Pinks and Blues. Stunning with just white or just black.

Magical, mystical and royal are some of the associations with the Violet color ... Gorgeous Plum is part of this family of colors. Thought to be the ideal color , a combination of the colors ... Red and Blue ... it is loved by children and most preferred by Artist. It is delicate, feminine and romantic. It is a warm and cool color so can be worn with yellows and blues. I teamed it up with blue-violet for a warm feel.
Wear with neutral tans or beige is an earthy, conservative color combination with a touch of the mystery that purple provides.

Petroglyphs are rock carvings or carved in stone. This particular petroglyph, Sol (Sun) de Jayuya, is not found any other place in Puerto Rico and because of this, it is of great archaeological value.
The other petroglyph is the ... Coqui Taino ... also a very popular petroglyph (paying tribute to our most loved ... tiny frog ... that is not green but flesh tone).... used as inspiration for tattoos.
Our Petroglyphs were carved by the Taino Indians who inhabited Puerto Rico in pre-Columbian times (before 1493). Some believe that they are artistic symbols or writings or have a religious significance.
I hand painted the design on blue-green chiffon silk. It has a border of leaves and vines.

I hand dyed this silk scarf in my favorite neutral tones of camel which is a soft beige, bronze, khaki and black. There are times when we do not want to wear color and so this is a fabulous choice. The patten created makes the black take on a star shape and so giving it a little punch of color.
