Laura Bolter’s favorite color is periwinkle: a pale blue shade that takes its name from the flower. A quick glance at the former Hallmark artist’s work shows that it’s not the only color she embraces. Bolter, a Lenexa resident, often works in a bright palette for her own paintings, while she introduces a more muted range of colors when doing stationery work.
