Since I was late to the party, this is catch up week for Project64: Out of the Box. The creators have kindly created a page for all of us late-comers to catch up putting crayons in our box. Instead of separate entries, this one has all the colors I’ve missed with a short, pithy description. I’d love to know which one is your favorite.
Robin’s Egg Blue
I was so excited to have a reason to pull out my china; and it had nothing to do with serving dinner.
Even though we’re not really china people, even after 30 years I still love the design.
Gray (or Grey)
Yep, back to the shell basket. I’m sorry, I just can’t help myself.
The two larger shells are oyster shells found on a trip to see The Floridian.
On the outside, oyster shells are rough, chipped and mottled, wearing signs of hard times;
the true beauty lies on the inside (even if the pearl isn’t of jewelry-store quality). Much like people.
The one in the foreground also has a tinge of the next color, Apricot!
Okay, one last trip back to the shell collection, I promise.
If you look closely at shells, you find the most fascinating patterns.
The inspiration and creativity found in nature simply cannot be surpassed.
Of course, the Artist sort of has a head start on us mere mortals.
