Fearless Friday, Color Your World!

The other day I woke up in time to see the sun rise

There is nothing prettier than the sight of the water reflecting the pink of the sky

Color can influence your mood, make you happy or sad

It is an energy source

Have you ever noticed how texture can change the way you interpret a color?

I love to fill vessels with eye candy in different colors and textures

And an occasional surprise

I found some old jewelry and shower curtain rings in a drawer

Such pretty colors…

I also had an old glass jar that I didn’t know what to do with

Now it’s a funky junk jar

It fits right in with some of my other funky things

This “artist’s vignette” brightens up the space where my art supplies are hidden in a cabinet

Some of my very favorite things are gathered here…

The funky blue vase is a pottery piece, by Charleston’s Elizabeth Carlson, is a treasured gift from one of my nieces

A fun fish by a local artist, a gift from my daughter, is paired with my own abstract “On the Coast”

The key cabinet was purchased from a craft store and decorated with sea glass, small tiles, old jewelry and paint

And a very special Christmas present from Charlie Brown

It’s fun to think outside the “jewelry” box!

  2. Nothing better that rising early at the beach. One of my favorite things to do at the beach is have my coffee and greet the sun. Jenna, you really have a flair for creating lovely vignettes. I love the old jar you tuned into a little work of art with discarded items. Looks great and I love the pop of pretty beach colors. I’ve spent time at this fabulous beach since I was a child and I still love it! It is so pretty where you live, enjoy those sunrises!

  4. Love it. I love glass vessels filled with colorful eye candy. Your vignettes makes me happy puts a smile from ear to ear!! Going to the beach resort this week-end can’t wait, the weather here is “suppose” to be nice. Regardless seeing the water, sunrise and set will be relaxing. Great post.

    I had to smile at your use of shower curtain rings because I’m famous for using “found” objects as decor! Hey, no one knows but you, right? (and all of us, but we won’t tell!). Happy sunrises to you!

  6. Jenna, the funky junk jar is too cute and shower curtain rings, I would have never ever thought of.. but that is how an artist thinks outside of the box! Love the fish and that blue vase…your artists’ vignette is so you!

  7. I see and very much like some of the low/neutral color things, all pretty and fresh and light and lovely. And I just can’t make it in my space. Like you, I’m a high color girl. I like my brights to live with and while I’m always so restful in a white-toned B&B, say, I couldn’t live it. I love all the color here — it just makes me smile!

    And by the way, thanks for the nice words on my cat painting. That made me smile, too!
