My Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday, I post 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 surviving five cardiac arrests in 2011.

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. …or, as the Anglican theologian, John Macquarie, once said, ‘we aren’t human beings, but rather, human becomings’ (smile). What a lovely, colourful photograph. Spring isn’t that far away, Linda!

    • Hi Lance – Thanks for that quote – “human becomings” quite resonates. Yes, Spring is definitely on its way. Here today, with rain washing away our mounds of snow, we’re getting a little taste of it. Not for long though, as the rain’s expected to turn to snow with minus 10 C by Sunday. Take care, Linda
