Grateful for Color (TY-2)

ako-oct16-2013-color

I am deeply grateful for color and the joy it has brought into my life starting with the first time I experienced sight and seeing my beautiful mother, my first toys, my indoor surroundings and then all the splendors of nature outdoors. I profoundly appreciate color. It delights me as I generously use it in all my artwork. I LOVE color!

Color plays a subtle yet significant role in our lives as it lends itself to how we view the world. Color, of course, would not be visible if it was not for light; so, I am equally grateful to light and its role in color (as well as our eyes…but I will save that for another blog). Color not only adds aesthetics but it also helps us to distinguish things.

A world without color would be bland as we would experience shades of gray with only light and contrast to help us differentiate things. Maybe some of you remember watching programs and movies on the now antiquated black and white television set; then later, television tubes were developed so they could transmit color. It was a marvelous transformation.

Color can also ignite our imagination, as well as, affect our emotions: reds and oranges energize us and blues and greens calm us. Color transforms our world and our lives in so many ways and on so many levels. I deeply appreciate all the color in my life. Thank you, color, for being so full and vivid and a part of the human experience.
