This post is...

brought to you by the colour red, because I love, love, LOVE red. Whether it's paired with near neighbours on the colour wheel,


or dominating through sheer force,


it's a colour that just brings me joy.


It can be tinted and darkened,


mixed in with a host of other colours,


or part of  a high key piece;


 it just says energy and pizzazz to me.


 I love it for the range from cool to hot,



and for the 'thumbing my nose at you' intensity.


It truly says most of what I want to say, and so quietly too.  😉😉😉

  1. Well, these certainly sing - a pretty loud song too - lol. Although I like all colours I think I am partial to a blueish mix of ultramarine and burnt sienna. No link as I don't know how to do one of a photo.

    1. So true, Val - red is a pretty loud colour most times. I'm not sure you can even link a photo, but we'd welcome a link here to a blog post of yours that contains the colour!

  4. Your red pieces are terrific - all of them!
    Red is such a strong colour -
    I love all colors - can't decide single favourites - for many years I always just loved the blue and greens together , but there are so many wonderful warm colors as well and I think every is beautiful in her own way and they are unique and all the combinations are so interesting ... a bit like humans!
    Color is LIFE!

    1. Many thanks, Susi, and I'm with you on the whole colour thing. Sara Genn says that 'having a favourite colour is like having a favourite lung', and I'm definitely with her on that. All the crayons in the box for me - whether arting or peopling!

  7. I'm with you all the way on this one, Win. I'm a quiet, introverted person, so red is my drama :)
    Hope the sorting is going well. When are you actually on the move?

    1. And drama with colour is definitely the best thing for an introvert, right? We can splash all about with the drama thing and do so in our pjs from our quiet corner. The sorting is going well; we're expecting to have our place up for sale by the first of March, with purchase of a new place contingent on that, so soon hopefully. I'm excited about it all!

  11. What a wonderful collection of red, Win and well in time for Valentine's day! I must say, I have a love/hate relationship with red - I tend to like the deeper shades, like in your second photo - and I find the brighter shades a bit too loud and aggressive but of course I can imagine projects that would be perfect for those tones as well! I LOVE that box!

    1. Thanks, Zsuzsa...glad you enjoyed the variety of reds. That box was an experiment with fabric stiffener, dryer sheets, beads, Pebeo Cerne Relief and a thrift store square vase...much fun to do, and now part of my own decor.
