Gold to Colors
Who can guess what inspired the title for my blog? The old photo is me standing next to my oil painting, (apples...) which now hangs in my mother's dining room, shown above at a juried exhibit at the Mystic Art Association, in Connecticut when I was a teenager. I listened to a song where I would often superimpose the word gold to colors while singing. Gold (currency) and color, art supplies at hand or even just flowing from my hand, seemed of equal value to have in my pocket. Actually it is still relevant as I live the dream seeking the silver lining. Come to think of it I exchange color for gold, every time someone buys a piece of my art. People who went to high school with me may have a slight advantage guessing as I used the words in my yearbook quote. Care to take a guess?
