About the Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday,  I’m posting a photo or piece of art that I’ve 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. Hello, Love your “Winter Fantasy”!

    I have subscribed to your Optimism of Color blog since you first started it and have really enjoyed it. In the first year I downloaded my favourites and then in 2012 I printed them and made a collage which I have posted on the wall. It really brightens up the room! I have attached a photograph of the collage for you to see.

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful art and photography! Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    • Thank you Lina – so glad you and your husband enjoy my blog. And happy new year to you too. Sorry for the late reply. Have just got back from a media-free but photo-filled month long vacation in Florida – so you will be seeing some of my newest Optimism of Color photos in the coming months. I can’t seem to see the collage you attached but would love to see it. So if you wouldn’t mind please email it directly to me at Cheers, Linda
