I have been on Instagram since 2013, and I started to notice photos matching objects to Pantone Color Postcards. This is the only card game I would enjoy playing. I ordered the box of 100 Pantone Postcards awhile ago, because I couldn’t resist a box of color, but I couldn’t bring myself to actually send […]
Our 2014 pilgrimage to Corning Museum of Glass brought us in front of Dominick Labino’s Ionic Structure of Glass, 5 feet across, set into a wall, backlit and glowing like a rose window. It hasn’t been on display for 15 years, since the first renovation of the Corning Museum. Labino was an industrial engineer who […]
The Lalique exhibit at The Corning Museum of Glass (until January, 4, 2015)is a treasure trove of orange. Stratoz took this photo of the Formose goldfish vase for me. The fins flow gracefully together enveloping the surface. It was made by blowing a gather of hot glass into a mold ~ mold-blown glass.
On the occasion of celebrating an Orange Tuesday Birthday, I went into the archives for this birthday card with a whimsical orange giraffe. My mother neatly wrote what my gifts were inside the card. I don’t remember the dress, but I remember the tool set. I found the dollhouse I made with this tool set […]
My friend Ruth sent me this photo from her garden. She said it made her think of me(orange) and Stratoz(flowers). The yellow emerging from the front makes the point that orange contains yellow! I met Ruth when I was 12. Our fathers had adjacent offices at University, and Ruth’s father told Ruth to look […]
The Red and Gold Banking Room(1931) glows orange. Hilly Meière, granddaughter of Hildreth Meière, and Vice President of the International Hildreth Meière Association, graciously allowed me to use this amazing photo. As this writer, David W. Dunlap eloquently described it: The Red Room is a glittering, vaulted grotto whose walls and ceilings are […]
I wanted to revisit the Albright-Knox Gallery which I thought I saw in 2007, but it didn’t look familiar at all. Fortunately, it was a place worth visiting for the first time. This painting is Tim Bavington’s translation into color from the structure of the guitar solo in the Rolling Stones’ tune Surprise, Surprise. The […]
Our friends have this painting by Lauralee Klindt in their sunroom. It is a good 3 feet long, which has me imagining a really big mosaic spectrum! I particularly like the orange section, where both red and yellow speak to the orange.
The Group of Seven was a revelation to me as a girl in grade one, in Canada, with an art teacher who showed us the brushstrokes, the colors and shapes distinguishing each of the painters in the group. The Group of Seven wanted to paint their own country rather than looking to England. I recognized the […]
