You may have noticed that I haven't posted any art for awhile. That's because I've been working on this series, The Color Series, and I wanted to post them all at once.
I got the idea for this series when I was organizing my papers. I was being ambitious and trying to organize them by color. Well, I have far too many sheets of paper. It would take me forever. But I started it nonetheless. So I found myself staring a groups of reds and groups of yellows thinking, These look really pretty altogether.
I needed an idea for the library show I was doing in June, and BLAMO - the color series was born!
Some ideas came immediately. I just pictured school uniforms when I thought of dark blue. Others were labored. I had a million ideas for red and switched and switched and switched until I saw a picture of cherry pie and thought Perfect!
They are all the same size, all framed exactly the same, and I think they'll look pretty sharp lined up side by side on the white library wall in Simsbury. (I'll take a picture when I have the show hung.)
It's a great relief to have this project done, as I am going into a big three weeks of author appearances and travel. And since my mother is coming for a visit, I have to clean the studio. Now I can pack up this series and tuck it all away until it's ready for the show.
Thanks so much for stopping in! I hope I brought a little color into your day!
Have a great weekend!
