I know the year is over half done, but we did have a color of the year. Well actually we had 2 of them if you go by what the people over at Pantone have to say. So of course with new colors we have to have some new names. The names are Rose Quartz and Serenity this year. Now don’t confuse these with just any old colors.
Yes Rose Quartz in not your medium rose that you have been using all along. also Serenity is not your grey blue that you mixed long ago.
According to their web page “Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.” And who doesn’t want more splash and sparkle?
Now of course other paint companies have their “color of the year” which do not nesh with other companies. So who are you going to follow? Well I guess the best way is to choose all of the colors and mix them all together to get “your” color of the year.
Now in other news here in the Temescal Valley in Southern California we are having the temperature falling like a rock. Where yesterday it was around 101 degrees, our predicated temperature will be 98 today. Not the kind of weather you like to have to be in a workshop doing wood Art. So much of our “art fix” will be confined to 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of drawing paper.
Oh by the way, today’s picture was made by my Mother when she was in High School. Must of got some of my talent from her. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her.
