She selected a paint chip out of a bag, one a day for 100 days, and wrote a short response to that color/that color's name. BRILLIANT! So I thought, I like color. I can write. I can doodle. I have paint chips. And I can scan. So here I am with my first paint chip and my first bit of scribbling.
My handwriting is cool, but it can be challenging to read sometimes, especially in this low-resolution image, so here's what I wrote in response to my first paint chip, a color called "Raspberry Couli."
I used to think that fruit in salads was just wrong. Cover something so sweet and delicious all on its own with some sticky, fatty, spicy salad dressing? ICK. But then I tried mandarin orange slices in a Chinese chicken salad with a clean Asian/sesame dressing, and yum! And then a salad with toasted pecans, dried cranberries, and spinach with a light raspberry vinaigrette and now you're talkin'! What does this have to do with "raspberry couli?" Well, nothing, really, except that some people do put raspberries in their salads. ICK.
