I was trying to come up with a title, I could not come up with any. I thought I’d make a post, but I have nothing to say. Nothing is happening. Days are short. I work. I watch tv. Sleep. Then I do the same again.
I have been practicing oil ink paintings, most of them are rubbish. I have tried to do warm tones, reds, orange and yellow. Cold tones, they turned out much better. It looks so easy, but to get anything presentable is hard. It is fun, but the room needs to be easily ventilated, but with the cold weather we have been having you just cannot keep the windows open.(-16C / 9F for nearly a week, today it’s only -1,3C /29F) so I’ve had my head full of fumes 🙂
I have not photographed anything worth publishing lately as I have not been doing anything.
I have admired our updated kitchen, I am happy with how it turned out. I more than once I questioned my choices in colors and materials. We only changed the tiles, countertop, sink and lights, the cabinets remained as they where. The kitchen table was sanded and re-waxed, so it is now the same shade as the kitchen countertops
Now I know the topic, it is something that is common in both of paragraph’s above, blue. They are blue.
The color of trust and loyalty. Blue has a calming and relaxing effect on our psyche, that gives us peace and makes us feel confident and secure. It dislikes confrontation and too much attention, but it is an honest, reliable and responsible color and you can always count on its support.
“How sweet to be a cloud. Floating in the blue!” – A. A. Milne
Blue inspires us to live in the present and bid farewell to our stress. By creating an air of serenity, it does just that. On a particularly challenging day, consider looking up at the sky. You’ll find an oasis of calm gazing up at the clouds.
“Everyone can enjoy the blue sky. The world is fair.” – Jukô Nishimura
Where calmness is present, so too is the color blue. In addition to its peacefulness, blue also offers direction and empathy. Though these attributes are promising, blue is also fragile and somewhat cowardly. These varying qualities make blue the perfectly balanced shade that so many love, trust, and adore.
I think we can pretty much find some wildflowers by now, for a real challenge don’t use archive pics…get out and take some new pics,, so after this prompt, I did go to the forest.
I will post photos I saw today, I started walking along the path in the first photo, looking for flowers. It was partly cloudy today- helps with yellow flowers, but so cold. Unfortunately I cannot name most of these.I continues further into the forest, but I will post those later.
I had to look up this word – now I hope I have understood it. A juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast” — as in this shot. This shot is – old and new – different size and color .
For this challenge, keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a color that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colors that excites you and tells a visual story.
Something warm, something cold – Romantic and old-fashioned , plain and new, that me.
