Searching for ROYGBIV: orange

 |  February 20, 2014

“Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow.” – Wassily Kandinsky

I unfortunately did not actively search for orange this time around. With all the snowbound days I feel like we have been spending a lot of time indoors. So this morning when I saw Jennifer’s reminder that today was the day for Orange, I searched my Instagram feed for orange.

The dining room is coming together. This room was previously dark navy blue.
When we moved to our new home, the first room I had painted over was our dining room. It used to be navy blue, now, a warm earthy terra cotta. I’m an earthy girl when it comes to wall colors.

I’ve been making a lot of butternut squash soup this winter searching for my favorite recipe. I think I finally found it.

dried grass reeds poking out of the snow, I often find abstract inspiration in my environment

ok, well, this is a tin of Indian Yellow, but it looks orange-y

My palette from last night. Always such a mess compared to everyone elses's! #palette #art #oilpaint

    You did a wonderful job of sharing all this gorgeous color! I've been living in such a white/grey world so it is much appreciated.
