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. What a powerful piece….love to see more of your artwork!!

  2. Reblogged this on Exploration Art and commented:
    Reminds me of an apocalyptic city rising from the destruction. Awesome!
    PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE ORIGINAL BLOGGERS POSTS. They were kind enough to let me share this wonderful article with you.

  3. I LOVE this! The color, texture, shape….just beautiful.

  4. As a child, my mother contracted typhoid fever and had a near death experience. She said it left her with a greater appreciation for living; long life, but a comfortable absence of the fear of her eventual final death.

    • I guess my experience propelled me into making sure that I’m doing more of what I like each and every day. FYI, that painting was done long before my near death experience! Cheers, Linda
