Color, color, I need color!!
The French impressionist artist Claude Monet once claimed, “Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.”
I am certainly not an artist, but during this time of year I do profess an obsession for color. And while it provides cheer and much joy for me, it sure doesn’t torment me like it did Monet; I’m simply satisfied to view it.
I’ve written often of my desire for color in my world. Especially after a long, bleak winter, I find myself yearning for spots of vibrancy before my eyes. I often joke that I feel color-deficient during this time of dormancy.
So when color erupts in the view from my window, my heart sings. And I may break out in a song or too out loud also! So this week’s Word Press Photo Challenge elated me – Color!
Color proves a tad slow in showing its glorious face outside, so I searched inside and outside my home to shoot these photos. Each shot I chose to personify this challenge is meaningful to me as well. Hover over each picture to read the caption and you’ll learn why.
I also decided to shoot each color attributed to the rainbow. So here’s my tribute to ROYGBIV – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Let there be color….and let it be SOON!
