Free Color Lessons


I have just filled the last page on my color book. It has been a long time accumulating all the words, pictures and happenings that fill these pages.

The book was started while on my first trip to Sante Fe--way back in 1999?? (note to myself --better date the pages next time). I knew I wanted to expand my understanding and ability to use color, so I set out on an adventure to find Orange.


What better place to discover orange than New Mexico! Well, from orange I went onto to purple, blue, red, yellow... think you get it. From this continuing exercise I feel blessed with the love of ALL color and look for it, and have begun to understand how color effects us, changes us ..... calls to us, and best of all, I love incorporating it in all my work.


As I finished pasting in a final picture today, I took some time and went over the pages again, and from that I know that my next book will be about adventuring into perspective. I'm headed out to get a new notebook to get started...

Want to join in?

Rose, very cool... I bet that book will be one you cherish and use for the rest of your life. Perspective, eh? That sounds veeeerrrryyy interesting. How did you compose your last book?

The last book started out by choosing one color to study for a week. It was orange and when I started to see and find orange in life around me...color, words, etc it became really an eye-opening experience... from there, well each color was explored and became part of me in a similar way. Perspective has a similar hold on me right now. Thanks for asking...
