my hell is black and white.

So, color schemes get stuck in my head. I see a color combination that strikes me as bold, beautiful, subtle, all of the above, and it ends up lingering there in my head. steeping. festering.

I just realized where my current color scheme came from. Sure it started with the photo of the old rusting chevy out in the desert that I sampled the colors out of with's cool color schemer. But really, the color combination is lifted off of the Amazing Kuinileti's, hand silk screened, graduation anouncements. It wasn't conscious, but a day or so after this color scheme emerged it dawned on me. So credit must be given where credit is due. Anyway, so yeah, Mal. Your coloration has stuck with me for over a year and now it's emerged here, and soon in my cute little retro bathroom. I'm laminating the walls with brown paper sacks, going with a dark chocolate brown over the texture, rubbing in a bit of venetian red, and some subtle touches of bronze. I'm trying to figure out how to work in a great cranberry color, maybe a tromploi wainstcotting. Not sure, the towels will be of powder blue. Lovely. Ok, so that's the plan, we will see if it happens. I can't sacrifice much painting time to petty home decorating. :)

The other coloation in my brain, for paintings, is magenta gradating to orange peel, there is verdant green there too. OMG, i just realized that came from your verbal description of the fab maroon carrots you were eating.

So, Mal, my color muse, what other color schemes do you have for me?

You know colors make me hot. ;)
