Learning about color…and patience


Since I’ll be getting to the hotel too late to find some polymer bauble in Judy Belcher’s luggage to show you, enjoy this soothing, sensuous polymer clay two-inch-square tile that Kim Cavender made for a Synergy2 collaborative project.

No one but Laurie Mika knows what the entire project looks like but she says it’s fabulous and you can see her clay quilt in Baltimore.

My flight to Minneapolis has turned into one of those tarmac-sitting experiences which allowed me to watch all the TED.com videos I’d brought along. Take a look at this one on color and have a very colorful weekend. I hope I get to the conference sometime today.

      That video is fascinating. I’d never heard of TED before — thanks for introducing me!

        I loved the first comment on Flickr – ‘pearls on toast’! I trust you will be showing us the myserious project when it is completed?

          The Beau Lotto talk was very good. In my college art class back in the late 60’s, we studied Josef Albers and his color theories. Seems like Lotto is using new technologies to carry on Albers’ work. Very cool. By the way, because of my color studies, I wasn’t fooled by the first challenge! All colors are subject to the adjacent surround.

            Welcome Minneapolis. I love is pendant as much as her pearl burgers!

              Wow! this is one great explanation of the way our brains work with color…mesmerising stuff! At the very least, I will send this on to my daughter’s psych teacher…and to think I always blithely assumed I was one of those august few who understood ‘real’ color…

                I can’t believe all the beautiful work displayed on this site! I am now dying to take a class with Kathleen Dustin and others.

                    Beautiful Kim! I can’t wait to see it in Laurie’s finished masterpiece.

                          Thanks for the mention Cynthia! I can’t wait to see what Laurie puts together. She’s so incredibly talented and I’m sure her mosaic will be one of the highlights of the conference.

                          The TED talk on color looks like one I can’t resist. Hope you and Judy are having a great time!
