Orange is the new Snippet Colour, by Kim Blair

(close-up sections from larger work on canvas)

Orange is back in vogue.  You'll find it in book and movie titles, accent pillows, hand bags and napkins... even a line of high end cast iron cookware comes in a vibrant shade of orange.

From pumpkins to poppies you can find a multitude of tints, tones and shades of this warm earthy hue... it can even be found in a snippet or two...

I love these snippets. I want to marry these snippets. I'm wearing burnt orange today. I had to overdye the garment to get the beautiful color. I go to a particular dr.'s office just to visit their blood pressure cuff, which is burnt orange and prussian blue. It's attached to the wall, otherwise I might have walked off with it. And shades of orange in my garden, adjacent to bronze or chartreuse foliage. Yum!

I'm enjoying the ongoing snippet show!
