Sometimes I see a color, and I have to have it.
Sometimes capturing it with a camera is enough.
Sometimes it's not. I'm thinking footwear here.
This year I've been painting inside, and it seems I've taken a bit of inspiration from the warm Fall colors.
My kitchen used to be purple.
Now it's yellow, red, and brown. The warm colors cheer me because they remind me of my favorite time of year.
The bathroom also used to be purple. Last month my daughter and I went to the hardware store for paint. We were thinking a nice green and maybe a bit of peach. Look what happened instead. All that's missing is the gold.
Fall color is dangerous in the same way as giving a mouse a cookie. Did you ever read this book to your kids? A simple act starts a circular chain of events that leads you right back where you started.
In the 70's, the house I grew up in was decorated in green, orange, and gold.
This painting is from that era. My Mother-in-Law gave it to us 25 years ago. I've hated it for 25 years. It would look much better on a gold wall.
Is gold really all that bad? It seems so lovely and cheerful outside.
So does orange and purple, though.
And look what happens when you bring them in.
