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. Its abstract but does it signify anything in particular?

    • For me, it’s nothing more, or less, than an optimistic burst of color on a dark background. I like the fact that over time natural forces have created this visual delight.
