Living In A World of Color
Yesterday I spent the morning having a little fun, ok actually lots of fun. It was really hot here so I took my paints outside and painted on muslin.
Here is one finished piece. It really is much more defined in the colors and brighter. No matter how many pics I took with my camera I could not capture the real look of the piece. I am surprised with what I did bc color is a real struggle for me.
Now here is a favorite color - orange. I mixed red and yellow with a little pink. Using a sponge brush I worked the paint out to the edges. Then I wrote words on the wet fabric with white fabric paints. This piece makes me so joyful. I can't help but smile when I look at the colors.
What color are you seeing in right now? Is it true colors represent and evoke certain feelings?
I love this quote by Louise L. Hay "The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences." One chapter in her book titled "Success" says "Every experience is a Success". I think I will begin to look at experiences more that way than whether or not they are a failure. A failure is just another opportunity to learn. "Everything I touch is a success," is a great affirmation to keep before us.
