Working in theatre and event services I always kind of thrive under stress and pressure. Problem solving in a pinch is one of my favorites and swooping in and saving the day is kind of a nice feeling. This week had a LOT of things going on for a big university event and even more things go wrong providing plenty of challenges. Physically, that gets demanding even if you like those situations. (And to be clear I don’t like it when things go wrong but I like to think I’m pretty good at problem solving when it does.)
To alleviate some of the mental and physical fatigue I like to have a piece of artwork to work on when I need a few minutes of not thinking about work. I love writing but it’s easier for work thoughts to sneak in.
So without further adieu here is my piece of artwork for this hectic week.
The lighting isn’t the greatest but hopefully the colors come through. They are my favorite colors and we’re very soothing to work with. Just what I needed!
I love the text of the wood that shows through and the mixture of media was a lot of fun.
I’ve titled this The Rain Tree.
Enjoy and have a restful, restorative productive weekend!
This week is busy at work as well as at home so I want some rich invigorating colors to keep me energized. Obviously, this sort of thing is personal and subjective to each person but deep dark colors help me feel bold and powerful–and of course purple is my power color. Set against the deep blue it makes me feel like taking on the world!
The food looks yummy too! Food and Wine is my FAVORITE magazine for food photography–gorgeous stuff!
It is a rainy misty morning today and I wanted to share some color schemes that always come to mind on these sort of days. Cool, mysterious, dark, melancholy, misty, morose, glittering–are all words that come to mind in the rain. These colors soothe. These colors make me think of magic and tall mountains that need scaling to fulfill a quest–of deep forests where tendrils of fog wrap around ancient trunks.
The hint of purple in the violets and crocus peaking their heads up drinking in the water. Spring is creeping in drop by drop as the rain falls.
