Spread 144 – In Contrast September 13, 2011

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

We are quick to point out to people who seek our advice that there are millions of colors, many ways to see the world, to solve a predicament of any nature. On the contrary, when it comes to ourselves and our world we often only see in monotones, or sadly, in black and white.

in metaphysics we are taught that when you’re in the extremes of black and white that you’re in your adolescence. it really makes sense when you think about it. and sadly i see that a lot at my work place!

Wondrous, beautiful, rich. I remember being young and feeling “stuck” in black and white, isn’t it amazing what a different perspective brings?

I guess that is why they call it perspective. Everyone has a different one.

I agree with Kathryn – I viewed the world more in black & white in my youth than I do now. I guess the passage of time helps one to see that most situations in life are various shades of grey…though I do prefer to see brilliant Technicolor!!

This spread is FABULOUS Orly and it feeds my need for Technicolor! 😉

The more color I see in my spreads and in other people’s work the brighter the world seems to be.

This spread is incredible. It makes my world feel good.

Orly, I don’t know how you do it, this is exactly the wayI see the world today. I just spoke to a friend and gave her advice in color but for my self the world is monotones or black and white.
love your post!!! inspiring

Can I just say I LOVE this spread. It reminds me of just starting out journaling. The colors and the many images. The mood. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!

I started art doing black and white and I do have a soft spot for it, but I’m trying to add a splash of color in my collages now! I just go for whatever color strikes me at the time! If it doesn’t work out, it’s just paper and paint! I can always paste or glue over it!

and these colors are so rich and beautiful! I am drawn to aqua’s, new green…marigold colors. Sometimes it’s hard to break away from our ‘comfort colors’!
