Coincidentally, I just had a color discussion with another artist friend of mine, Kathryn Antyr at True North Arts. I've always associated Kathryn with her artful use of a certain shade of purple, and her recent scrapings for the GPP Street team were so uniquely her own style that I'd know it was her work if it had been anonymously lined up in a row with 20 other scrapings. Which leads me to conclude that color can be as unique a part of an artist's style as their line, form or method.
What are your favorite color combinations? If you aren't sure, look around you in magazines or movies for inspirations. Don't force it -- your eyes will find one(s) that truly makes your heart sing. Then spend a week working with that color everywhere - in your journal, your jewelry, your knitting, your sewing. As you can see, SOME PEOPLE even paint a few pieces of their bedroom furniture with their favorite colors. (ca-ray-zee)
LOVE these colors
