My scientific right-brained self tells me that Peridot, the gem, is a magnesium rich silicate - Mg2SiO4 to be precise. But my artful left brained self also reminds me that the bright olive green color evokes energy and new life. Either way, it's a great color to celebrate in this month of August and all year long!
I had such a wonderful calm feeling composing these inspiration collages, no doubt due to the harmonious nature of the color green! I have to admit, my inner rock nerd really enjoyed geeking out with this next collage.
Whether the color is enriched with citrusy yellows or tempered by cool blues and grays, the spirited palette is sure to inspire pieces that are at once lively and calm.
