A New Week September 2011

Looking out of my window this morning the  scene is very different from yesterday. The glorious sunshine has decided to take its' time before making an appearance. The wind  is gently moving branches of the large,old oak trees. Amongst the  many greens in my garden ,vibrant red geraniums are  making a stand whilst growing inside the disused wishing well which is for ornamentation rather than any other purpose. It is just there but the splash of red it contains makes all the difference to my view and how I feel about the weather.

Sometimes it is the little things in life that are so vitally important. That tiny splash of red from the geraniums makes a huge impact on the scene outside. Just like the small dots of red in Turners masterpieces.

I don't think there is anything in life that cannot be  affected by a simple addition of a small amount of vibrant colour. So whatever you are doing today decide which colour is going to not only brighten your day but your spirit as well. In fact each day this week see which colour lifts your mood the most and try capturing that feeling within a painting.

It certainly works for me!
