Do you have a memory of spring or any season? That color, that when you see it, it brings back memories of that season? The fun you had, the feeling of adventure?
That is what happens when I see designs or patterns, add some color to those things and it takes me right to those wonderful feelings. It doesn’t have to be seasonal either. It can summon up a memory of a movie. To this day, I can describe a color or colors in a movie that perhaps my number first born child and I saw. Robert Downey was in one movie and I remember the color red and filter the director used. I can’t recall the name, but I can describe it to my first born and she knows exactly which one I am on about. Incidently, the name of the movie was “In Dreams”.
While working on some patterns last night, I tried to put in some of the colors that reminded me of this season, spring, Eastor for some of us; the brightness of the flowers, the varigated leaves of the plants.
