If you looked at this blog at all, you know I urge you to look up and see things in the clouds that others may not see. And,I urge you to look at people’s feet to see where the folks are from, the kind of uniform they wear, are they indoor people, outdoor people, golfers
….. – you can tell by their sun tamed ankles if they are golfers — etc.
I love the outdoors and love to go into the woods and study the signs left there in the snow the night before. Usually a whole story of survival, food searching, body temperature control, — life and death many stories unfold. Hope to see some of that on Drummond soon.
So, the purpose of this blog posting — is just to let me talk— that is not what I wanted to say — it just came out of my brain!
The real purpose is to help you to see more of what has always been there. I hope to pique your interest in getting outside more, and appreciating our open spaces and fresh air — try to get outside and learn about signs in the sky, the feet, and the good earth available to us — even in city parks and waters edges. See things that you may not have noticed before.
NEW SUBJECT – Grandma just called me to come see a TV story in FOODTOGRAPHY – It is becoming a fad to use social media to share your meal with others via a photograph — when Grandma travels, I often shoot (no, not as a hunter) my food and send a text to her – I share my meal with my friend just like my Grandpa did in 1900 — but I do not have to travel thru woods and over streams on horse back in bitter cold — I love this new social media!
Hey, I am with it – I am a FAD follower, — I am. I know, you had to wade through photos of my Thanksgiving Dinner of color
— So, get even with me — go outdoors and photo the signs left last night, think about the colors you see in the outdoors, and then text me of your adventure and send me a colorful FOODOGRAPH of the meal you prepare this evening!
NOV 29 – Are you married to an artist? – One moment ago I was asked to see a new study in shades and movement from cool to warm (In color of courseAn artist’s life is made up of colors – nary a day goes by (today it has been nary an hour) that I am not asked to see the color effect on a painting that Grandma is working on — Honest some times I do not see the difference —–
So, say I, color creates my emotions – maybe as much as music, pretty girls, or Grandma! Don’t tell her I said that! Hope you are not having a grey day — only bright days the color of the sun, or the green forest, the blue ocean, food, or what every gives you emotion —1. R U a writer? — Your cover is for selling your book and the more eye catching and simple the design the quicker a potential reader is going to be to consider reading it—consideration leads to selling a book.
2. R U a driver? — A red traffic light is a simple circle illuminated in bright red. The single message is STOP—quick and easy to understand. If a cop catches you running a red light you’ll get busted and that will cost you green bucks!!!
3. R U selling a horse? — “Advertise in the Horse Gazette Newspaper and online and reach MORE horse buyers… Color reproduction is “pleasing color” – we cannot guarantee a perfect color match.” — I found this advertisement on the web for an advertisement.
4. R U an artist? — Many artists are confused. The marketing name for a paint, such as “indian yellow” or “emerald green”, is often only a poetic color evocation. More popular color names are “viridian hue” and ” chinese white”To remedy this confusion, in 1990 the art materials industry voluntarily began listing pigment ingredients on the paint packaging, using the common pigment name PB28 for cobalt blue, PR108 for cadmium red. WOW, now I got it. Grandma will study shades of green for an hour — then show me her work for comments – like this morning’s project. Grandma told me she started with Quin gold — How many of you know what Quin Gold is?
5. A car in Y’R family? – Do you like the color of your car? Did you pick the car for it’s color. What color is it? My car is Cuv’ee Silver. U all know what cuv’ee is — right? Hey, you like my modern art? — I just had to show you my car color — but a plain color swatch seemed boring — Maybe I should get this “work of art” painted on the doors of my car? Do you go for that idea?
I looked curv’ee up on the web. Cuvée is a French wine term derived from cuve, meaning vat or tank. The term cuvée is used with several different meanings, more or less based on the concept of a tank of wine put to some purpose. So I guess I drive a tank! It has no top sometimes – It is a convertible cuv’ee – I drive a convertible wine vat.
Then I found this advertisement for a Bistro — See the color of food –
Cuvée Wine & Bistro … the ULTIMATE in fine dining
Now, to see if I can make you really hungry – Yesterday, I was fascinated by the colors of our Thanksgiving dinner – I was not the chef – Walt and Mike are outstanding hosts and chefs – Here is some of what they presented our palate – I present to you dinner thru the emotion of color — because taste is too hard to present to you here on the web:
