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. Good for you for celebrating color, both in nature and elsewhere.

    I saw the line “Earth laughs in flowers” elsewhere some months ago and traced it to Emerson’s poem “Hamatreya.” The relevant portion is:

    Earth laughs in flowers to see her boastful boys
    Earth-proud, proud of the earth which is not theirs;
    Who steer the plough, but can not steer their feet
    Clear of the grave.

    Steve Schwartzman
