My Favourite Colour?! How About ColourS?!

Artist's Play Room #25

This week's challenge for Artist's Play Room Jenn asked,
I want YOU to show ME YOUR favorite color. Go, make a piece of art that celebrates your very favorite color. If you just can't pick then I guess you'll be submitting a rainbow! Hehehe.
I am pretty sure she had me with "rainbow" as that actually IS my favourite. I have been this way for a Very Long Time. And while I tried, really I did, to nail down the one that stands above all others, I ultimately surrendered...

I've been on a bit of a tear for months and months Now with funny fish, odd octopuses, silly seahorses, crazy crabs, twisted sister sea turtles, and loony lions of the sea. I did finally manage to get above sea level in one painting, but still, I seem to BE all about the sea...

Funny thing, the pair of paintings I am submitting I'd painted turquoise awhile back when Jenn was asking us to combine turquoise and lime, which happen to BE her favourite colours, and then I went an entirely different way in that challenge.

So here are two of my Under the Sea series which clearly explain my dilemma in choosing a single colour as my favourite...





And this painting, where I actually got most of the way OUT of the sea, again, the colours are rainbow with a side of sunshine and sea...

You are a rainbow! I love your bright, fun paintings! It is hard to pick a favorite color, I always hate it when they ask you to be pick one in those magazine quizzes...I'm like...undecided, is that an option? lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

I love your bright colours. I'm a sea lover too, so I love all of those colours. I especially love your last picture, those boats are fabulous.

you know I think this was the meanest topic ever... how can you pick just one... I love any colour as long as it is bright and crisp and all of yours fit that bill perfectly... combined with lots of texture and movement... doesn't get much better than that!!!! love this take on the topic...xx

BEautiful, psychedelic, fantastical art! :0)

see you there! said...

I am so fond of all your sea creatures but then you showed the sea shore landscape and surprised me. Under the sea, beside the sea, you do it all so well.

I can not figure out how you do your fabulous art pieces. Are they paper mosaics with some kind of medium that makes them look very firm like bits of resin or plastic. Very energetic. I like all of them, but really like the dark contrast with the boats.

I love that you are not afraid of color:-) I especially like the bottom piece - it reminds me of your "WORD" piece, where I just wanted to looook adn looook en keep looking to see all that there is to see! Very well done:-)
