At this point, I decided I didn't like dark colors - I need things pretty, cute, and light in color. I only wanted pastels in my life to offset the dark shadings. I picked mint green as my favorite color which was not liked by my mother and she let me know about it every day. She wanted me to like lavendar and pink like all the other young girls. Well, I wasn't like all the other young girls and to me mint green was very soothing and it was of me - my own claim and no one else's.
Now, after having a unified brain, I see the colors and shadings of life in a very different light. I have more light in my life than darkness so I am able to handle the dark colors in pictures, paintings, etcetera.
The above picture is my latest in my occupational therapy coloring class. I relly like this picture and I have both dark and light. The dark colors are now beautiful to me. Dark colors bring richness to a picture. Some pictures are pretty with all pastels and if you notice a picture maybe there might be a darker shade somewhere to emphasis shading to bring the light out even more.
Darkness can emphasis or drown out the light that we see. But, if we look hard enough there is some light in every day. Some days we might have to really look deeply into the day to see what brightness might have been there that our brain may have discarded because we are so used to the darkness being larger than life at times.
May 2017 be a brighter year for you.
