COLORS OF THE DAY
pen and ink, crayon
© Sue O'Kieffe 2008
I believe I channeled this rendering from the spirit of an ancient Mayan. Doodled before and after my art show, focused on colors and textures of the desert...hot dry gritty piercing visionary questing. These doodle structures have appeared before on my meanderings on paper. A river runs through it.
I really don't think new crayons are for children anymore. My box of colors has names like wild strawberry, mauvelous, hot magenta, purple pizzazz, shocking pink. Granny smith apple, inchworm, timberwolf, robin's egg blue, dandelion. Im so relieved they didn't rename periwinkle, my favorite color as a child, as some mean-spirited rumor I read somewhere had led me to believe. It's good to retain those sentimental favorites too. Oh, yes, and of course there is still red.
Do you have a favorite crayon color?
