It’s been a fun week of colorful collages.
Once I got started it was hard to stop.
A lot of response was generated by the different colors and it’s made me see the trend in my photography, color wise, what I’m drawn to….besides the human element. The clothes we choose, our dishes, the bed linens and artwork which surround us in our lives. Many have commented on which color is their favorite.
Right now everywhere I look it is green green green We’ve had a lot of rain.
