(I love this piece! She's amazing!)
The whole world, as we experience it visually,
comes to us through the mystic realm of color.
Our entire being is nourished by it.
This mystic quality of color should likewise find expression in a work of art.

You can spend a lifetime studying the interaction of colours,
and painting how red can dance,
so when the viewer 'gets it'
and says 'Aha!"
their way of seeing is tranformed.
Do you have a favorite color? When I was little it was "rust" (I know, weird for a little girl) then it was maroon, then purple, then I went for color combinations like pink and green (what can I say, it was the 80s!) But honestly, it's hard to pick a favorite because when I see beautiful turquoise pottery I think, it's definitely turquoise. Deep purple velvet has me rethinking that, so does cobalt blue glass and the color combination of hot pink and orange, especially in flowers!
The one color I can never seem to resist though is red. If I see a sweater in any other color, it might be nice but I can resist. But in red? Pull out the credit card, it's time to shop! Red cars, red shoes, lipstick, fingernails, sofas, walls, dinnerware ... it doesn't seem to matter. (Of course, who doesn't love a red Valentino dress?) Christmastime, as you can imagine, I am beside myself! Red balls? Red beads on a tree? LOVE it! Maybe it's the fire sign thing. ;)
Here I am almost four years ago, in red, with my friend Dawn. I think it's the last time I was in a skirt that short, by the way!
Do you have certain colors that get you? That you just absolutely love? A color that makes your heart sing? And what does it mean?
Remember this song? I loved this song in high school!
O.K. I guess I just dated myself! ;)
I love love love this song from 1977!!
Good ol' Elvis. (Costello, that is.)
Who was was cooler than him? AND he wore glasses.
Here is his Sesame Street version of the song!
30 years later!!!
So funny! I love it!
What's in a name? I guess they must have named the band after his hair?
Anyway ... Here is another song released in 80s
I am as curious about color
as one would be visiting a new country,
because I have never concentrated so closely
on color expression.
Up to now I have waited at the gates of the temple.
Hope you are having a beautiful, colorful week!
