I belong to a collaborative color journal group and it has proven to be a very fun and challenging project. Until ORANGE arrived, that is. I do not appreciate the color orange. That is not to say that I don't see the beauty in a clementine or satsuma orange, or that the wondrous streaks of orange that can light the sky at sunset don't amaze and delight me. But for a color to work with in my art projects, nope, don't like it. It grates. It's too bright. It's too 70s for my taste (a decade that should live in infamy for its clothes, hairstyles, design and especially, music!). Orange just doesn't get my creative 'juices' flowing (pardon the pun).
The other members in our collaboration all seem to be happy, or at least okay, with orange. I am really looking forward to see how the others handled this poor cousin to sunshine yellow and fire engine red.
I finally found a photo I took in the Caribbean last year that was orange. REALLY orange. I use that for the foundation to my page. It turned out okay. I mean, I loved the image, and I used orange, and I turned it in on time and like that there. But, it is still ORANGE. Ugh.
Do you, Dear Reader, have a color that you abhor? Does some bit of the rainbow grate upon you, like fingers scraping down a blackboard, and make you crazy? Or is it just me?
It's probably just me....
