Color Possesses Me – Paul Klee

Oh so true!

“Color possesses me.

I don’t have to pursue it. It will pursue me always, I know it.”

Paul Klee

Whether its test strips of colors perched on my studio table, or paint tubes scattered like gumdrops across the floor.

Or perhaps, Β the stunning colored shadows of a vase upon my wall…….. they are always there.

Its true.

      2. hmm…..now I am thinking that I would like to purchase LB because (so many reasons!) when I need and want more delicacy, like you said Indigo is a powerhorse and with my dramatic side, well, sometimes I don’t know when to hold back those reins! Okay….just have to ask when you wrote DS you aren’t referring to Daniel Smith but to a color that we talked about? or you mean that DS makes LB with the above color combo? sounds like code doesn’t it? lol

    1. thanks Nico so much – Klee has such a fine sense of balance in his work. Lines, but with boldness and feeling…. to be swept away. He is one of my favs too. Thank you, and peace & good blessings!
