Our theme for April is Create something inspired by color.
Art prompt is to use a single color -blues, oranges, yellows, purples, reds, or greens to create a painting.
Pick a color that provokes a memory for you and write about it.
All the pretty colors…..
What color do you feel like today and why?
I picked the color green, and starting at the very top of the canvas which has a small amount of green mixed with a good deal of white, working my way to the trees, which are much less green mixed with a good deal of black, this was my final result. Artwork by Momma Kim.
The Illusion of Color.
I feel this is the season for a variety of colors. It seems like everything comes to life in the form of color. As a person who coordinates colors when crocheting projects for others. Colors really speak to me. Rainbows seem more prevalent in the Spring, Colors for me dictate and or expresses moods presented in the rainbow after rain. Prisms are capture in the sunlight on a bright and sunny day. There are prisms in our wardrobe that notifies of how we feel like showing up in the world on any particular day! Colors fascinate me combinations of color but as I see the color palate of Pink has changed in a litany ways. I feel like the prism of pink is much more than the fusion of red and white. I think Crayola and Redheart would agree. Fuchsia doesn’t look like it used to Coral and Rose gold is now included in the color palette of pink. It has been my experience that is very difficult to match two pinks so pink is not pink or at least it’s not consistent you know to coordinate similar shades of pink colors.
Today’s dye lots make us question our vision because It seems that color pallets are continually changing over time.

I am thinking of the color of lavender/Lilac because that was the color of the dress, I wore in my best friend Melinda’s wedding. I was her Maid of Honor and the reason I am thinking about it is I was going through my closet, and I saw it hanging there and it brought back memories of that day and how much fun it was. This year will be their 21st wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it was that long ago. I was so excited to be her Maid of Honor. Melinda and I have been friends for a very long time, and I look forward to visiting her and her husband Mark every summer. I am very grateful for their friendship, especially Melinda!
