Shades of Purple: Winter Card in April

I rescued this from another pile of art from the old house. Every Winter Holiday Season (Christmas, Yule, etc.) I make and send out decorative cards with a well-wishing message and a color theme which changes each year. This one was an exploration of shades of purple done on colored paper with opaque gouache paint. My parents saved the ones I sent them. I have a collection of them going back more than 30 years. I picked the one I liked best of each "edition" and saved it with the tree ornaments in a box. I think this one is from 1982.

Gouache on violet paper, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", winter 1982.
