When it comes to the weather, I’ll take hot over cold any day. I feel the same way about food. I’ll take the warm apple pie, but hold the ’al a mode’. When it comes to visuals, however, I do a total 180. If you walked into my closet, you would find a lopsided rainbow of cardigans hanging over a rack of clothes organized by color. The cool end of the spectrum far outweighs the warm. Even in my art, I gravitate toward greens, blues, and violets. When I do choose reds and yellows, I tend to use the cool versions of those hues. Today, I decided it was time to give the ‘spicy’ colors on my palette a chance to play, and I’m really warming up to the results.
