Green, Green, My Heart is Green
It is the Fall season…Autumn…a time in many locales of oranges, rusts, sometimes brilliant reds, and greens that are fading into yellow…but here in Santa Monica, green, bursting at the seams and filled with blooms of color, abounds.
Fall is also a time of new beginnings…new school year…projects, growth and cycles of all kinds.
Therefore…join me please, as I celebrate the glory , growth, and greatness of Green!
Bulls eye…Kelly green seen between two buildings hits the visual mark!
The tart, green apple “taste” of this yogurt shop, (in terms of Synesthesia) stirs up the appetite!
Green paired with its opposite/compliment red (or in this case, pink) makes for a striking interior image.
The complimentary red ladybugs stand out against the green background, making a strong statement.
Verdigris is the natural patina which forms on the surface of copper, bronze, or brass as it is exposed to air and water, wind and weather over time. It’s aqua-green tints work well in natural settings.
Greens don’t have to be brilliant to be beautiful…a soft grey green exterior punctuated by a wooden door melds perfectly with the dark green vines which trail over it. There is a melancholy to Autumn…after all.
And neither should we.
Happy Fall Everyone!
