MINI: 2 THINGS TO MAKE YOU GO :-)
I know that many of my 'Chronically Lovely' friends, like me, are flared- up at the moment.
Many more 'normal' folk, find the changing of the season a daily battle against negative feelings, grey skies and shorter days.
It is frustrating when I am too sick to make art(!)- but thanks to Professor Google,I can still enjoy some lovely nibbles of other people's creations.
Those of you who know me or regularly follow my Blog or Facebook page, will know how important colour is to me. Colour feels like the fuel in my engine.
I have rediscovered two sources of inspiration about colour:
The History of Art in Three Colours- a wonderful 3 part, BBC Documentary. If brain fogged, you can enjoy for the photography and colour, and if up for learning some new stuff you will be really fascinated. Dr James Fox guides us around Gold, Blue and White, and along the way, we see so many wonderful artisans, artifacts and artworks from around the world, all photographed in crisp HD. All parts are free on Youtube, (and not studded with ads).
Over the last few weeks, I have started to learn to cross-stitch ( it's going badly, if you must know!)...and this led me to Kaffe Fassett who is the Granddaddy of creative tapestry, knitting, and quilting. He is, in my humble opinion, a genius with colour. Whether you enjoy his style of painting or if his colours encourage you 'not to play it safe' with your own schemes, he is a true original and his web site is an Aladdin's cave of yummy colours and textures to inspire.
