COLORS OF MY WORLD!

The colors of my world . . .eclectic, varied. Landscape of NE Florida has so many GREENS! Love the new spring green in March, the deep purples and roses of sunrise and sunset. I found myself this year planting flowers of dark purple (salvia) peach/pink (petunias) white (bacopa and pentas) and then my favorite yellow African daisies and various colors of portaluca.  I so love flowers. My father would plant tulips in New Mexico (brilliant RED tulips).  I loved them.  When I moved to Florida I discovered my love for color and flowers.

Color and light is what I am drawn to. Our home has the shades and curtains open WIDE.  I love light.  I need to see the sunlight.  I need to feel the warmth of the sun as it rises on the front porch. The days when it is cloudy and the barometric pressure drops bother me immensely.  I will light candles and play music to offset the unsettling of the darknesss and drop in barometric pressure.

I delight in color everywhere, my coffee cup, the birds in the backyard, the brilliant orange of the finch inside, the flowers I find on my walks, even my tennis shoes.  Color is my constant.  (And yet, I wear an awful lot of black!)

When I get a new art product, my first inclination is to create a color wheel or a color swatch of the colors from that product.  Have you made a color wheel?  Check out my color triangles that I’ve used with Golden paints!
