Color!

Last week I listened to a fantastic podcast episode of RadioLab that keeps popping into my mind. The episode was a fascinating look into color and how we see. One of the things mentioned were mantis shrimp, who have way more color cones than humans.

All that talk about color inspired me to do a little art journaling on this rainy day in Kobe.

Sometimes life needs a splash of color!

It also inspired me to try a new nail polish color! Bright and bold, hurrah!

Take that, crummy weather!

What color is your favorite? Mine is green, though I enjoy just about every color. Usually I like very earthy, natural shades, but lately I’ve been particular to pops of color–maybe it’s in accordance with dreaming of summer?

  1. oh! i like the nail polish color! i like neutrals with a pop of color in pretty much everything. this is especially true with decorating and clothing. it makes things fun and interesting.

    1. I can’t wait to decorate our future home! Maybe you can help me paint in exchange for whisky, tea and conversation πŸ˜‰ (Though I guess we’d have all that anyway πŸ™‚ )
