color

i am orange.
This is the color of my 1964 VW Baja Bug with the sliding rag top ( that i later destroyed, i don't recall how)
Orange is the color of my hair at the junior prom
Orange is the models I made of fast cars
orange you glad this post is almost over?

When I painted I picked Orange and purple, and splashed them together in great swaths of joy and exuberance.

I picked the title of this post in honor of my Nigerian visitor who asked me what color I was. to someone who spent 33 min on my blog and who seems legitimate, I could not answer; "Beige, with a touch of cinnamon in the summer'
So there you have it - I am Orange, until you peel me.

Have I been to your blog before? I feel like I have been here before. Maybe Michele sent me before? Well, she say hi again anyway and I love the picture of the doves wings... althought I think I've seen them before.

Michele said...

Stopping by to say hello David, and yes, I think you know who sent me.

You are indeed very orange today, and it looks grand on you. I love the fact that the flower seems to be smiling, which of course makes me believe that the photographer was also smiling. Were you?

Somebody asked me that very same question, not too long ago ! All I could think of was "blue with a touch of green and some pink"...

Michele sent me ; have a great weekend !

Michele sent me, David.

You've had quite a week. Your friend Gary being sick and having to undergo nicotine withdrawl, a dead dove, and the election thing as well. I hope the upcoming week holds more promise for you.

I love the idea of the Orange VW. I remember them from my youth and there was just something so lovable about the cars--and that was before Disney's Love Bug movie. Orange is very photogenic.

I think of orange as a nice warm color and with winter right around the corner, I need to do a bit of painting. An office in a gorgeous shade of orange might just be what I need for the next few months.

I get a lot of Nigerian visitors via e-mail, but their focus seems to be more on green rather than orange
