International Colour Day: Celebrating the Equinox in a New Way

Thanks to Instagram I discovered International Colour Day, which was created in by the AIC ~ International Colour Association.  I am still charmed by color spelled with a “u” since I grew up in Canada, and it took me awhile to unlearn the spelling when I moved to the United States.

The AIC chose the Spring Equinox to celebrate color because of the equal balance of light and dark, day and night.  Color draws me into the studio, and is the fuel for my art.  I watch how people respond to my work, how color can draw them like a magnet.  The blue-green people are particularly sensitive to those tones, lit up from within, as are the lovers of the spectrum of visible light.
