"V" is for the color Violet

At, it is Alphabe-Thursday. The letter of the week is "V". In the last year I have returned to my love of art. I have a room devoted to drawing, painting, gluing and journaling. I love color. So, the obvious. "V" is for violet. Violet is a shade of purple. It is a lighter shade than actual purple, and it is a mix of blue and red. I have the color violet in many forms.

Violet is associated with mysticism, purpose & imagination. Violet is the symbol of royalty, nobility, ceremony, mystery, trans formation, wisdom, enlightenment, cruelty, arrogance, and mourning. V is for the Very Vivacious Violet!
