Live in full color


Color possesses me. I don’t have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. Color is a basic human need…like air and water, a raw material, indispensable to life. I love how artists can get away with coloring the sky red because they know it's blue. Art is unquestionably one of the unique elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. Art simply colors your life.

Lizzie, I too am a HUGE fan of color!!! Once at a huge party for my sister-in-law's 30th birthday the entire group was given instructions to introduce themselves and say one thing about who they are. I had been out looking at fabric and craft stores all that week and I was reeling from all of the delicious colors. I seriously could NOT get them out of my mind! So here I was at this party with at least 30 women I didn't know and my turn came to introduce myself. This is exactly what I said:

"My name is Michelle, and I love color."

NO ONE ELSE GOT IT! I felt so silly! (MILD DESCRIPTION OF ACTUAL FEELING!) The room went silent and I wanted to crawl under a rock somewhere far, far away.

Reading your post, makes me feel great!!! I totally agree!!

I love color!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
