Here's something interesting - Popular phrases that include pink:

Tickled pink: to be happy
In the pink: in good health -- this phrase hasn't always had this meaning. See what it originally meant
Pinking shears: scissors with serrated blades
A pink elephant: term to describe hallucinations during intoxication
Pinkie finger: the smallest finger on the human hand
Pink slip: notice that employment is ending
Pink collar: refers to a particular class of jobs once only filled by women


  1. I find it hard to paint waterlilies without them looking juvenile for some reason. Your painting is beautiful and has a soft, painterly feeling. I really like it Prerana.

  2. Thanks Nancy! I liked it too! Specially I challenged myself to do this freehand. Usually I do graph and sketch on canvas and I am very critical about the sketch with pencil. This one feels like I have been able to freely express myself. I will post the WIP pictures of this...
    I can see its a gr8 improvement from the pink lotus that I had done excatly 3 years ago!
