Weekly Photo Challenge … The Hues of You

Aruba Sunset

As an artiste dahling … a fabric artist …. needle woman to be more exact, I love love colour and texture. They are the foundations and corner stones of my Creative Church.

Like many creatives (and general population) I think and dream in colour, and in my head pictures come before words. To boot I am an emotional being and my moods have colours (to me that is).

I know that many see reds, oranges and hot hues as ‘angry’ colours. However, for me they are ‘warming’ and ‘soul filling’.

This picture as taken at my dear friends ‘gaff’ in Aruba. The same piece of sky tells a different story every single evening always a new colour and texture so when I saw the theme this week I thougth time to lose my novice status here and jump in both feet with my first weekly photo challenge.

Nature NEVER fails to amaze me with it’s creativity, ability to surprise and touch my soul. Hence, this particular picture speaks to me of the move form a dark rather gloomy mood, melting into my warm space before the refreshing burst of life giving bright blues….. note dear reader a wee grey/black cloud amongst the blue? A niggling doubt that isn’t winning in my mind as the fresh blue still manages to dominate it’s effect of shouting ‘look at me’!
