Spread # 110- House Of Blues September 22, 2010

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

They say that truly creative individuals are attuned to beauty not only in their art but also in their daily lives.  In that sense I consider myself a truly creative individual. Beauty is everywhere to be created and to be found in many shapes and forms, but here I am speaking of sensuous beauty, mostly visual, of my home for example, the clothes I choose to wear, or the meals on my table, objects, textures, and colors. I was examining the blues in my life. I hardly use this color in my art, I wonder why. I love it on the walls of my house touching rust and burgundy. I love Aquamarine blue bodies of water (as oppose to gray). I love blue glass jars with Gerberas in them, the blue in Moorish tiles, blue foliage on my balcony. Blues may bore me on a worker’s uniform, but a Turquoise stone may excite. It matters of course what kind of blue if you are attuned to beauty at all times. I must explore more of the blues in my art.

I went through a period of time that I hated blues and greens becuase I didn’t explore the many hues. Mother painted the kitchen a muddy institutional green and when I left home I swore I would have nothing that color. Now, what do I have on pillows, in the pattern on my duvet, on the photos on my walls…apple green and astounding teals and pinks. I now love all the colors and appreciate them as they fall together on the spectrum. (I would LOVE to see your house BTW) -Lynn

Your world is beautiful, colorful! You help others to see the beauty in the colors of their imagination and our inner words, and express them for the world.

Love the journal pages. Interesting thoughts on colors. I had a yellow room growing up. Not by choice. Hated yellow for a long time. Also have auburn hair so avoided all reds, purples, pinks my whole life. It’s only now that I’m in my 30’s that I am allowing more color into my wardrobe, house and life. Of course, having a daughter was probably the driving force for the change 😉

Looked at my journal pages and realized that I don’t use any blue in the pages but have two blue spreads.
I bought a beautiful blue paint recentley and haven’t used it yet. I guess now is the time…You might be tempted too.
Beautiful spread.

Wow a message on a journal page. It’s a wonderful thing.
I recently discovered your blog and I am so inspired by your work and your words that I posted a link to your blog on mine. I hope that is ok

I can’t live without color. On the walls, in my kitchen – dishes, towels, frying pans, as well as my clothes etc. But I also llearned to appreciate no color, or actuaaly – two colors: black and white.
There is a lot of beauty in these, especially next to each other. As for blue – my favorite is periwinkle!

the soft tumbled
blues and grays
of small treasures
and pale blue
beach glass,
stripey stones,
cobalt glass
and the incandescent blues
found here:
the end of summer blues
crossing over
into the golden time
let’s get out the red shoes…

xox – eb.

Oh yes, indeed. Blue is wonderful grayed down, greened up, with a touch of brown. Now you are inspiring me to work with blue … off I go.

I am painting blue pages to carry with me to the orange and red and rusts of San Miguel. I am amazed at the blue NM sky against those red bluffs…I am feeling blue, a good way.

It looks like you painted that on glass. I’ve been reading your blog and I read your page, Why Blog? I like it. I’ve been thinking I have to put a whole creation together before I put it on a blog, but you and many others I have been visiting keep it real simple at times. How else are we to do it! So thanks for the inspiration. I’ll admit; all of this makes me want to create!

i can feel in this a personal responsibility, but without the all-too-common ego that accompanies and dilutes it. a proud salute to you, or your channeling of the lightforce rather.
