This is my color therapy for SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
caused by lots and lots and lots of RAIN.
I'm glad we have rain . . .
but the gray, cold, dampness does tend to make me gloomy.
I wanted to see the bright yellow rays of sunshine again!
Here are some paintings and color studies of what I call "rainbow ripples."
I also call them 8, because they look like the number 8,
and 8 turned sideways is infinity.
Everyone who knows me, knows about my rainbow obsession.
Bright colors make me happy!
I love the sense of expanding, opening, radiating.
Ripples, rainbows, light, color and sound waves . . .
all represent energy moving out into space.
These are the first 2 rainbow ripples paintings that I did in 2008.
In the first paintings there were swimmers, swimming into infinity.
Now I prefer just the abstract rainbow ripples by themselves.
I love making these paintings!
Also . . .
My sweetie brought me a wonderful gift to cheer me up!
A book on colors and pigments, and their meanings and uses.
A set of watercolor pencils!
Plus, more drawing pencils . . .
As soon as this rain ends,
I'm going to go out and try out my new pencils to do some watercolor on location!
