[caption id="attachment_589" align="aligncenter" width="490" caption="colorful baskets"][/caption] I love color.  I consider myself a colorist.  I really can't draw things, but I can work with color.  When selecting my wardrobe, I refuse to buy black to wear around my face.  I'm a "summer", and need purples, raspberries, oranges.  No red, black or white.  Have you ever done your colors?  I have an old book, Color me Beautiful, about choosing your specific color palette.  According to the book, I should wear winter white, not white, brown not black.  Interesting, isn't it?

The challenge for me lately with metal clay is to add more color to my work.  I love pearls, or course, but also want to explore adding color in the way of stones, or resin, or enamel.  Back to finishing taxes....
