Most of my adult life I’ve been told not to pick favorites. Don’t settle into a college major too early, don’t fall in love with a house when looking for one since you might not get it, don’t play favorites with job opportunities as they are tough to come by, and of course don’t play favorites with your kids (don’t worry, that one I agree with!). Basically, in this day and age, you get what you get and you don’t get upset.
Not this time. No way, no how. Normally I play be the rules and I love all colors equally and I can see the merit in all colorways. I am like that with art after all, I love it all. Then along came a client that inspired me in such a way that I have been able to create two amazing colorways for her. Both based on her daughters and both beautiful in their own right. But this one, oh this one.
It’s simply called Mer. Because honestly nothing I could name it would ever do it justice. Nothing I can say will ever describe the depth of richness, the vibrancy of the shades, the perfect way the colors interact. I would just let the pictures say it for me, but unfortunately even they are failing me this time.
