"The color pink is named after the flowers called pinks, flowering plants in the genus Dianthus. The name derives from the frilled edge of the flowers—the verb "to pink" dates from the 14th century and means "to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern" (possibly from German "pinken" = to peck).] As noted and referenced above, the word “pink” was first used as a noun to refer to the color we know today as pink in the late 17th century. The verb sense of the word “pink” continues to be used today in the name of the hand tool known as pinking shears."


I mix my own colors using a high quality set of certain colors, I mix any hue and variation I desire. This gives my art a certain uniqueness, you can tell this is not paint that comes straight from a tube on to the canvas. Color mixing is one of my strengths.
