Nature abounds in color.
On everything in sight,
the only colors you won’t see
are boring black and white.
Yet minimalists love what’s spare:
black and white and gray.
A splash of color here and there
is enough, they say.
I agree restraint is best
where decorating goes.
There should be some rules
concerning where paint flows.
On walls and cabinets and floors,
on doorknobs, furniture and doors,
The only place where you should paint
is anywhere where pigment ain’t!

The Prompt word today was “Paint.”

My entire house is yellow orange! As is my living room and bedroom and studio… all different hues. I have been so busy that I hadn’t noticed that everything is blooming. The Royal Poinciana is the fullest I’ve ever seen it. I’ll show more of it tomorrow!
And, a few weeks later:
Color Your World Robin Egg Blue
Thanks to okcforgottenman for allowing me to use the photograph of the nest and eggs he sent me on Easter day four years ago as well as the subsequent photos of the chicks and empty nest.. I had never seen robin eggs before and had imagined them to be more of a sky blue, but this turquoise color is gorgeous.

The landscapes were taken in Arizona when I was there for Xmas. The bird photos were all taken two weeks ago here in La Manzanilla. The ferns and the flower bud I took in my own yard this summer.
Mieke burned this image into wood making use of a magnifying glass and the sun! It helps that she lives in Arizona part of the year. Can you imagine the control this would take? No mistakes allowed. She later added paint as well.
