About the Optimism of Color Blog

For 365 days, I am posting a photo or piece of art that I have created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.

  1. Nice photographs.

  2. How lovely. We drove up the North Shore to Baie Comeau and then had to wait for the ferry to get repaired before crossing to Matane. It rained the entire journey, including through Gaspe and Forillon National Park. Seeing this gorgeous image of a bright blue fishing boat and lipstick red posts is a wonderful correction to my memory of things!

  3. What great composition and, of course, color! Thanks for sharing!
