Inspired Colour – 3 ways (Rhubarb)

Inspired Colour – 3 ways (Rhubarb)

Inspired Colour - 3 Ways ( Rhubarb)Colour starts my motor for what I have to do each day. It excites, inspires and can make a crappy day into a happy day.   I love seeing it’s application whether man made or by design.

In NATURE

I wrote about the kangaroo paw from my front garden a couple of weeks ago.  They are positioned in my front garden where they catch the morning sunlight just perfectly.  Kangaroo Paws are also the type of plant that once they like where they are, you don’t have to pay them any attention and they will thrive! Wow…that’s a quality that would be great to have in anything I reckon.

In FOOD

Rhubarb Berry Steamed Pudding by Eat the Love blog - MrJackHonky

How good does this look! .   Rhubarb Berry Steamed Pudding made by the very talented Irvin Lin otherwise known as Mr. Jack Honky on his wonderfully entertaining blog Eat the Love.  Irvin has such an honest approach to writing and pours so much of himself into his food.  It’s obvious he loves it.  I know I’m gushing but there’s nothing like a creative person allowing you to watch their process of creation.  He’s also super nice..thanks for such a great blog ;)   I challenge you to read it and not feel the same way and have a few belly laughs along the way.

In ART & DESIGN

Free World  By LiV S GRØNLUND 2001

Free World By LiV S GRØNLUND 2001

I grew up with a  famous, and beautiful,  Norwegian artist as my aunt!  LIV S GRØNLUND.  She was, and still is,  my idol.  I can look at work from anytime in her career and still be awed.  The image above is of one of her paintings titled ‘Free World’ which she did in 2001.  I wish tante ‘Liv’ was sitting here next to me explaining the ideas behind this. It would be so interesting to see whether what I take from it is close to where she was going!  I’ve seen her exhibit before and she has a lovely gentle softly spoken nature which becomes entrancing when she’s talking about her work.  You may have caught the blog posting dedicated to LIV not long ago.   How amazing are her paintings? (gushing again!!!) – If you want to see more…go to her gallery

  1. Hi Kari,
    You have got the same name as me. Do you like it? I have a story to tell you. My friend who is a Norwegian like me, has had her first grandchild, a boy called Finn. So I decided to give him Make My Day’s bottle-warmer as a present. Today, I got a Thank You card, Finn’s parents writing:” We love the bottle warmer. It has already been used for Finn’s first trip to the art gallery!” It is not always so easy to think of a present for a new baby, so with my success with the bottle warmer, I will do it again. (I have done it twice now!)

  2. LOVE that color! Looks so great!
