Earth tones

Fall, the time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.

(Lauren DeStefano)


Title of Painting Earth tones


Blue hole

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery


“Blue hole”


Painters had to grind up the semi-precious stone lapis lazuli in order to make ultramarine, the deep blue pigment that is the hallmark of many Renaissance paintings. The name comes from the Latin ultramarinus, meaning “beyond the sea”, because the stones were imported from mines in Afghanistan by Italian traders in the 14th and 15th century. Ultramarine was so expensive that some paintings were never finished because the painter couldn’t afford to buy more pigment! Even Michelangelo couldn’t afford it and Raphael used it only for a top coat.



“I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of blue bonnets
In a blanket made of stars”

Faced with blue

Ironic process theory or the white bear problem refers to the psychological process whereby deliberate attempts to suppress certain thoughts make them more likely to surface.
“Try to pose for yourself this task: not to think of a polar bear, and you will see that the cursed thing will come to mind every minute.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Winter Notes on Summer Impressions

Trying real hard to NOT see the creepy face in the upper right corner.

You’re welcome 🙃😜
