Color of the Week


Isn't it beautiful? My new pink Mah Jongg set.
Pink case
Pink racks
Pink tiles
Pink dice
I won it Sunday at a tournament in Frisco, TX.
And Sunday just happened to be my birthday.
Happy birthday to me!

A Lesson in Color
Hue = the 12 purest, brightest colors.
3 primary
3 secondary
6 tertiary
The 12 hues represent the full spectrum of color.
Tint = any color + white. 
This lightens the color.
Pink is a tint.

Quote of the Week

"I love even the smallest thing of all and I paint it on a golden background and make it visible in order that it moves someone even if I don't know whom."

The Art of the Quilt

A great way to spend part of a weekend is to visit a Quilt Show. The local quilt guild organizes one of these wonderfully creative events every two years.

The show includes venders with the latest quilting gadgets and scads of fabric, demonstrations, lectures, workshops, door prizes, and the best part, colorful & creative quilts.

Here is my friend Beth among a garden of Irises. Beth & I cemented our friendship back in 2003 when we worked on a quilt show committee in Broken Arrow. Neither of us are quilt makers, but we sure are quilt lovers.

A prize winning quilt & it's prize winning creator, Ethel.
Ethel is my neighbor and will celebrate her 90th birthday at the end of the month. I believe she must work on quilts everyday.

Why do I love quilts?
For me they are like fabric collages. Great combinations of color & patterns that make fabulous works of art.

Color of the Week

the color of summer!

Colors don't really exist in nature;
they only register in our minds where vibrations are interpreted.

YELLOW is the ultimate warm color.
YELLOW is a primary color along with red and blue.
On the color wheel YELLOW is the compliment of purple.

YELLOW = optimism
YELLOW = happiness (the happy face icon is YELLOW)
YELLOW = caution/yield

Colors of the Week

A day to celebrate liberty,
a day to celebrate color: 
the colors of the flag
the colors in the fireworks.
