This week in Sally Russick's Focus on Life Project we were give the prompt to find color. I was out of town last weekend (and didn't post) at a used book sale and found a book titled Venezuelan Vernacular. It is mostly photos of houses in Venezuela with a lot of history about how they were developed architecturally.
I was excited when I opened it up because it had so many color pictures of house facades and how they were painted. Having grown up in the Southwest, I seem to be a sponge for color. I just loved what I saw and decided to purchase the book( very reasonably since it was used). I knew I would use it in my studio for color references and for the blog post for today. Below I will share a few of the marvelous colors plates in this book.
We were asked to tell how these colors make us feel. I think these colors are my comfort zone, my comfort food and where my heart lives. I love the warmth and vibrancy of these Southern Hemisphere palattes. I feel energized and welcomed when I look at them.
I hope you will visit the other participants in this project and see what colors they found in their lives HERE
