My friend Sheridan, who writes an aweome blog at the southern eclectic, that you just have to check out, and read everyday, go leave her a comment - asked this question on her blog on Monday -
"What color comes to mind when you try to picture something soothing?"
Her question got me thinking about the importance of colour, and what it means to us, as people. How colours can soothe, can ignite, can calm, can fire, can relax, can inspire, can rejuvenate, can depress, can capture, can emote, can sparkle, can damper, can lift, can dispair.
Colour gives me vision. It is essential in my world. I am inspired by it on a daily basis. It captures my imagination, it builds my dreams, it gives life to my planet. It brings vitality to my work.
Colour - is part of my DNA.
To answer Sheridan's question - light aquas, turquoise, pale sea blues - soothe my mind. They are the place I go to, as I prepare for speaking engagements, live television, photoshoots, broadcasts; when I get ready to take a step out, where anything can happen, at any moment.
This photograph, that I took in early Autumn, calms me when I look at it. The bright turquoise of the door, catapulted behind the light fragile flower petals, a stem that holds droplets of water, the hint of yellow, blend together to form an image that let's my mind breathe.
Building on Sheridan's theme, I'd love to know, what photographs or colours allow you to breathe?
That's it for now ...
