“Crossing Pink & Blue”

“Crossing Pink & Blue” by Elizabeth Traub

“Crossing Pink & Blue” is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub. This is the beginning of a series. This is my first try. Out the gate as they say. As an interior designer, somewhat retired one I might add, I love to keep up with the latest trends. The trends in color, design, and architecture. I am old enough to now see old timeless traditions in home interiors stay the course. However the that course changes with colorways that have long since been shelves.

I am seeing the fashions I wore in the 70’s come back to life. I am seeing the young women carrying handbags from my past. My sweet and lovely daughter-in-love carries a beautiful handbag I had in the early 1990’s. Mid-Century furniture and design fill all the designer apps.

In the “Crossing” series I will be pulling colors that are the hottest for 2021. I started with the pink and blue hues. Perhaps overstating them just a bit. I have visited furniture showrooms and see so much of the same colors for 2021 are flooding all design elements.

I am always trying and painting new colorways and having fun. If you are an artist and stuck in the middle of, “what is next” try to create your perfect commissioned client by visiting furniture showrooms. Ask yourself if this were you client’s room what might you paint. Then go home and create. There are many things that inspire artists. Often we get stuck my our mixed emotions, our blank inspirations yet we still want to paint. Paint something.

I heard when I was a teenager that the best way to become a writer is to write everyday. I was 14 years old and started my first journal. I now have over 37 journals. Yikes that is a lot, but it got me writing. I also read an article, which I cannot find, but it basically said if an artist can paint 52 pieces a year, they refine their skills and by their second year will sell 20% of their art.

I love how this piece fits into each different room perspective. “Crossing Pink & Blue” by Elizabeth Traub is truly Art You Love. If you are interested in this piece and it’s not yet listed on our buying site you can contact me.

Interior Designer, Consultant, Artist. Which is it they ask? All of the above. God has blessed me in ways that words cannot describe. Doing what I love and making a career out of it all. Starting with a beautiful designer showroom. Decorating homes and specializing in kid's spaces. Magazine covers and spreads, then show homes. Adding in business consulting. Working alongside my clients to develop a strategic plan to design and market their product or service in the correct markets. Then one day, after years of painting for my clients, a few gallies, my hobby business I decided in the second half of my life to bring Elizabeth Harris Art Gallery to life. I took my paintings to the streets and flipped my website into my "Art You Love" business. Do what you love and love what you do. Adding Elizabeth Harris Art Gallery and creating artful pieces for your home, office, business. An empty wall invites art you love by Elizabeth Harris Art Gallery.
