What's in a Name?

A little of this. A little of that. I was so happy to see "electric indigo" appear on our 52 weeks of color list. I had just found something in my inventory that I had marked for last year's challenge  and hadn't used.

Now, honestly -- this is bright violet to me. Not the lilac we often call violet, but the actually COLOR WHEEL violet. Oh the things we learn in Art 101. Everything here is old and from the bottom of my closet. Many things are no longer available, but obviously still viable.  The Blue Blood pants are actually well on their way to purple, but hey, it's a neighboring hue; that red-violet thing.

It should be noted that if "electric indigo" was actually in the blue-violet family, it didn't show up that way on my monitor. I am going with the swatches *wink*.
