The deep, rain-filled cloud blues have been achieved. Logwood shavings, and my fermentation Indigo vat, together, have created a range of blues and deep purples. To compliment the deep stormy sky colors, I used cochineal and toyon to create the range of pinks I see in the cherry blossoms, native mallow, and fringed checkerbloom. Every blossom is bursting, every bee is circling… time to leave the computer, and go back outside.
