A string of happiness and spirituality, created with Bright yellow and Purple Crystal Beads.
The works of Hilma af Klint are mainly spiritual and her artistic work is a consequence of this.
Af Klint kept her groundbreaking paintings largely private. She rarely exhibited them and convinced the world was not yet ready to understand her work, stipulated that it not be shown for twenty years following her death. Ultimately, her work was all but unseen until 1986, and only over the subsequent three decades have her paintings and works on paper begun to receive serious attention.
Hilma af Klint felt she was being directed by a force that would literally guide her hand. She wrote in her notebook:
The pictures were painted directly through me, without any preliminary drawings, and with great force. I had no idea what the paintings were supposed to depict; nevertheless I worked swiftly and surely, without changing a single brush stroke.

Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. It's the color that captures our attention more than any other color. It's the color of happiness, and optimism, of enlightenment and creativity, sunshine and spring.
The color purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power and ambition. Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.
Please note that slight colour difference should be acceptable due to the light and screen.
