Da Vinci

We have finally begun the process of painting the main level of our house. For three years we have suffered through white walls that are now speckled with little boy fingerprints everywhere. It may seem wierd to think that white walls would cause someone to suffer, but I'm a coloful person. I love bright vivid colors.

The main thing holding me back from painting for so long (other than laziness) is the grueling process of picking colors. When you get one of those big fan things with all the colors on it it just seems impossible to choose. So needless to say I was surprised to find that one of the main colors I chose was "Clarksville Gray". I mean with all those blues and reds and yellows to choose from I pick GRAY? But to me it adds just a hint of color. And in different light it takes on a sage kind of color.

Now my kitchen is another story. I've picked a dark purply red. Kind of like a dark red kidney bean. Its dark and dangerous. I'm going to LOVE it. At least for a while.

When is someone going to come up with instant color change walls? I love having color on my walls but I'd rather have different colors for my different moods or for different events. Wouldn't it be great to have all bright primary colors for a birthday party or all shades of red for Valentines day?

I can't imagine a world without color. Kind of like the movie "Pleasantville." When they began to really live and discover life, they also discovered color. Some of the best things about color is that there are infinite numbers of them. Color is also in the eye of the beholder. We all see it differently.

I hope that you enjoy the colors of your life today. And that you find your true colors, whatever they may be.

Until Everyone Hears,
