Our good friend and artist, Victoria over at Neo Watercolour, posted a study in orange. I love orange. The world needs more! Her post has inspired me to post. (Well, too bad I crashed back in mid-December when she actually posted, but it’s never too late to celebrate color!)
I had orange put in my hair recently. That picture was taken at the park where we stayed for Thanksgiving. I’m getting the orange renewed early next week and will probably feel as if I must show you all about it then! Maybe even without a hat covering most of it.
We stopped at a thrift store on the way there to do some nosing around. When we pulled in to park, some lazy-butt had left the trolley in a parking spot, so I jumped out into the cold rain to move it. Grabbed the handles to shove it away, looked down, and there was a sodden, folded twenty dollar bill. Good deeds! Can never tell if you might get paid for ‘em! <:-D
In the shop, rooting through a pile of paper cast-offs, I became vaguely aware that a man had joined me on the other side of the same shelf. He leaned over a bit toward me, and while staring at my hair, was getting ready to speak.
My mode switched from idle perusing to Oh buddy, don’t even bother me now. You have no idea what I’ve been going through and if you start, I’m gonna scream.
He started anyway, despite my thought balloon dripping knives and blood.
Excuse me, but I had to tell you. You shouldn’t have dyed your hair silver.
Blank look from me.
You should have left it orange.
My sudden gust of laughter at his cleverness.
Thanks for the tip! What was I thinking?!
PS. If you aren’t familiar with Victoria’s painting, here is one that never fails to make me smile: How to Sharpen Your Nose.
