I love colour. All week I’ve been experimenting with bright, vivid colours in my journal. Some folk reckon it’s a bit quirky for a male of the species to be so fond of colour. But I do, and that’s all there is to it.
Back in the day, when all the other kids were listening to music by The Smiths and The Cure and had neatly cropped hair, I was listening to stuff by the likes of The Small Faces, The Who and even Donovan. I had bell- bottom jeans and sported hair half way down my back.
I remember the wonderful artwork on the album covers and how colourful they seemed to be. I was drawn to this type of imagery from an early age and it is something that has stuck with me. It’s funny how those early years manifest themselves later in life. My wife says I’m having a second childhood. But who cares? The world we live in today can be a very dark and frightening place at times. So why not enhance people’s life by adding a little colour.
My two pieces for PPF this week are a couple of fun artworks, which I hope you enjoy.
The first is ‘At Peace,’ while the second is ‘Lollipop Bloom.’
