STILL LIFE WITH THREE GROUPS OF FLOWERS
(and Lots of Cloth)
DEEP IN THE WEEDS
This week has been the week of never-ending fabric.....
Everyday, all day .
THE CELESTIAL COLOR
In Ancient China if you as a Commoner dared wear yellow you could be rewarded by
having your head cut off, immediately. It is Heaven's color and only
The Emperor was allowed to wear it. So it's best not to add it to your wardrobe.
Yellow is very difficult to control. It rises to the most brilliant light
and it sinks to a muddy dark mess. No other color is as hard to handle.
You know a beautiful yellow when you see it, and a bad yellow screams.
So, with all this yellow on my hands I turn to it's opposite, violet
for some counter balance. And since the yellow wants to go green,
I must choose red-violet.
