"Colour is all around us, it is a very powerful and exciting part of our lives. Everyone responds to colour. Usually it is the first thing we notice when we look at an object or a scene: we react to the sensation of colour before we are fully aware of shapes and other qualities."
Spring green has such a jewel-like quality to it! The contrast of that green with the grey of an evening fog had me out roaming the landscape one more time before nightfall.
I found the horses grazing in the southeast sector of the preserve. Only a few lifted their heads to appraise my approach...mostly I was completely ignored. At that moment in time the drug of the emergent greenery held much more meaning for them than a possible caress from their friend, Lynne. I felt drugged myself by the atmospherics...grey and green, the damp chill air, the sounds of eager eating and those lovely, lovely forms.
"Colours are living entities - as much as the wind, or flowers, or you and me. Like fragrances, like music, colours can pierce the heart, expose the soul and uplift the spirit - such is the magical power of colour."
