“I found I could say things— Georgia O’Keefe
with color and shapes
that I couldn’t say any other way
– things I had no words for.”
“Sketching is almost everything.— Fernando Botero
It is the painter’s identity,
and then color
is just a gift to the drawing.”
“Try to forget— Claude Monet
what objects you have before you
– a tree, a house, a field, or whatever.
‘Here is a little square of blue,
here an oblong of pink,
here a streak of yellow,’
and paint it just as it looks to you,
the exact color and shape,
until it gives you
your own impression
of the scene before you.”
Today’s MotD inspires us to color our world with love and light as a way to raise the Earth’s vibration. From the perspective of storytelling, one of two things continuously happen throughout: an action and some color. The action moves the story along: “Lightning struck the house”. The color adds description, depth, and dimension to the action: “Lightning struck the house. Five generations of the Smith family lived and died in that old farm house.”
As a noun, one definition of color from the Oxford Dictionary: “the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way the object reflects or emits light.” As a verb, one definition of color from the Oxford Dictionary: “make vivid or picturesque”.
Our challenge becomes coloring our world in such a way that reflects our Inner Light and enhances, inspires, and enlightens the way others experience the world, thereby giving others the permission to color the world with their Inner Light.
