The combination of purple, green and yellow just shouts "Spring!!!" My mother has an amazing iris bed in her garden that enchants me every spring when it teems with all shades of iris: purple, violet, lavender, blue, pale yellow. The mid-range green of the spiky leaves makes a perfect foil for all the bright colors. Last year's Easter dress for JoJo was a pastel yellow and the photos from Easter are among my favorites because the colors are so harmonious and at the same time stimulating. It just makes me happy to see all these colors living together.
This egg has traditional geometrics but non-traditional colors. I started with a turquoise blue egg, then worked through a lovely olive green, then violet and the last color is yellow. I really like that the background color is yellow. This is not a usual choice in pysanky eggs, but I like that it contributes to the "spring" feeling evoked by the rest of the colors. Imagine this egg with a white background and it would have a completely different meaning or feeling, wouldn't it?
