Christmas is Coming..

Hand Painted Glass Ornaments
Yes, I said it.  Christmas IS coming, and faster than I would like. In fact, I have had this first round of painted glass ornaments ready to upload to Etsy for several weeks now but I couldn’t quite make myself do it.  I think because I am not exactly sure where the year has gone.  Wasn’t it January just a week ago?  It feels like it.  So, like it or not, the year is certainly marching on and before you know it, December will be here.  It’s less than 4 months until Christmas now.  And so, I had to finally avail myself of the approaching 12th month and upload my painted glass ornaments to Etsy, finally.    Colors, colors, colors, I must say that is what appeals to me the most about these decorations.  That and the fact that they are glass, because I love the way glass gives a sheen and vibrancy to paint.  I got to play with various combinations of color with these ornaments, but I think the blues and purples are my favorite.

Red Letter Day

RED cherry tomatoes my mother grew in Tasmania,
Australia. They were as delicious as they look!
A "red letter day", in earlier times, referred to a church festival or saint's day; more recently it refers to any special day. The saying derives from the practice of marking the dates of church festivals on calendars in red.

Colors often have different meanings in various cultures. As a psychologist and an artist/designer I have always been interested in the psychology of color, (or 'colour' as it is spelled back home in Australia, and other countries). Color is something I am constantly thinking about as it relates to the world of arts and crafts.
