ROYGBIV: ORANGE!




A friend of mine was thinking about making throw pillows, pillows that would have her photographs on them. She found it interesting how many of her pictures incorporated the color orange, a color she doesn't have in her house.

Take a look at your own work. Are you finding that, unbeknownst to you, there's a lot of orange in it?

Here you see a tree I photographed in Virginia during one of my trips back there to try to help out my dad. And then a photomontage I made of pictures I'd taken of various papers -- painted and otherwise. And finally a bright orange Chevrolet. I mean REALLY bright!

And now on to yellow . . . a color that doesn't show up really well on a bright white background such as this. Unless you highlight it, of course . . .
