My Colors

Folks who like my work have always raved about the bright colors in my art. In college using “tube color” was discouraged. Mixing and neutralizing colors received emphasis. When I graduated and painted with more neutral colors I was fussed at by fans. “What happened to your bright colors?” they would ask.

This afternoon I had a call from a shop that hangs my art. Two of my pieces sold. I brought more works to the store and picked up a check. Tonight I looked at my records to figure what works were no longer hanging at the shop. Well, the two pieces that sold had neutral colors - oc and of. Don’t get me wrong; I still love bright colors. It amused me that the two neutral pieces sold ahead of the others that were brighter.
