Someone told me that women can spend days with shoe shopping. Well, I definately don’t belong to that kind. Speaking of pastels, this is a completly different story. In a shopping frenzy I bought this set of Terrages Green by Diane Tonwsend. When I opened the box I wondered, what had gotton into myself. Usually these are not my favourite colors. Since my workshop with Margaret Dyer I am much more relaxed when it comes to bright colors and Richard McKinley once wrote, that sometimes you have to leave your comfort zone. In the end it was Lorinn Signori who dispelled my doubts. She compared painting to cooking:
»2 cups seeing
stir in 1 1/2 cups feeling
when the bubbles rise, sprinkle liberally with harmony
And then drizzle with insight.«
So, I guess I bought some new ingrediants and I’m curious how these spices might influence my future cooking.
