Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!

"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..." Words of the late artist Frank Howell...

Wednesday- Celebrating Color

Hi everyone!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another post about color.  The first post (last week) was about Yellow/Green, one of my favorites, and the color that you will see over and over again on my blog.  If you missed that first Wednesday - Celebrating Color, just click here for the link to it.  I thought I would just work my way around the wheel in a systematic way, so I'm going to share an image of the color wheel here...

...and now we'll move to the color green.   Just like last week, I'm going to share some green images that speak to me.  Incidentally, I love the month of April, and I think it's simply because everything is starting to turn green once again!  I'm just going to warn you ahead of time... there will probably be some pics of living green things up ahead...

This last one is a perfect example of complementary colors and they way they work together to make one another really stand out and shine!  The way you locate a complementary color is to go straight across the color wheel, so the complementary color for green is red.   See how the red really pops out of the sea of green?

And on that bright note, I'll close this episode of Wednesday- Celebrating Color.  Next week, I hope you'll join me as I celebrate Blue-Green.

  1. Oh, I would dearly love to have that green coat! The frog handbag looked a little too real and I had to really look closely to make sure it wasn't a big "Yuck" factor!
    Green is definitely in my top three favorites!

    1. That coat would look pretty on you! I love both of these pieces, too, especially that frog bag. I'm pretty funky when it comes to dressing, but I'm not sure I could even pull off a frog purse! It sure would be fun to have though! Thanks for reading, Leslie Anne.

  2. I love the moss covered chair. I can't wait for green to return outside!

    1. Oh, I do too, Kim! Wouldn't you love to hang out with the creative person that thought of that? I'm looking forward to spring, too!
      Thanks for reading. I appreciate you.
