More Color

Recently, a friend asked me what my favorite color is.  We were trying to figure out if I am water, fire, earth or wind but that’s a subject for another post.

My answer was, “all of them!”.  I love color.  I just do. The more the merrier!  It makes me giddy when I see a little color party going on.

These images are from my foray away from the paint store and into the fabric store where a lot of little color parties were going on.

I don’t know what this stuff is called but isn’t it pretty?

I have a couple of possessions that I love dearly – first of all because they were both given to me by my precious 19 year old baby girl but also because they are full of color.  She knows me well.

The first is a book mark she made for me when she was about 15.

I love the pattern and especially the combination of colors.

The other is a winter scarf that she brought back from a trip she took.

Don’t get me wrong.  I love black and white.  And I do think it is possible to come up with the wrong combination of colors even though I can’t think of one right now!  Or maybe ever!

There you have it.  I’m hard pressed to come up with one color to declare my very favorite.  So from now on I’m going to ask people, “What is your favorite color combination?”

All the colors!

All the colors!

So? What is your favorite color combination?

What is Art?

What is art? That’s the million dollar question, isn’t it?  Let’s rephrase it and ask “what is art to you?”.  I rarely hang anything on my wall unless it has some significance to me.  Sometimes my walls are bare for awhile until I find the right piece to live there.

I currently have this picture hanging in my house.

The significance to me is that I think they are quirky and mesmerizing.  Also the thought of having a Polish chicken hanging on the wall makes me giggle.  And I lived in Poland for a few years.  Plenty of meaning there.

I’m thinking about adding this one.  Or maybe I will change them out periodically.

Absolutely stunning in my opinion!

I also have this image hanging on my wall.

This is a picture I got off the internet.  I don’t know who it is.  It grabbed me because for some reason I can feel what she is feeling.  It’s how I feel on the inside.

I bought this painting at an antique mall.

I do not happen to feel like this on the inside but I do love the movement and the colors.

Here are some pieces that I do NOT have hanging on my walls but I really wish I did.
