House Number 340 in Red Orange with Blue Accents by Nutmeg Designs

 

I spend time immersed in numbers, in their shapes, and how straight and curved connect with each other.  Each house number takes on its own personality, as I wend my way around them.  This 340 reminded me that I also spend this time immersed in color, contrast, line, all elements of composition.  Learning about composition was exciting, a new language.  The people who commission house numbers from Nutmeg Designs understand this language, whether explicitly or implicitly.

Abstract art allows composition to speak freely, and it is a joy to spend time with each number imagining what will make it glow or pop or infuse a house with color.
