Sometimes All the World is a Piece of Art

If you think of the whole world as a composition, then there are brushstrokes of color everywhere.

I found these in Allentown, PA, this last weekend. Look at them and enjoy this world where bright spots are everywhere just for the looking.

Some colors are muted or subdued:

And some are loud and clear in their message.

And then there are the combinations of color and pattern that catch your eye.

Go ahead, walk around. Take a look.

      I have always thought it too bad our climate and scenery doesn’t lend itself to bright colored houses too well, but snow seems to make things into a whole different picture, and color that might be garish, or emphasizing the tiredness of the rest of a building, just glowed, when I saw it in the city last weekend.

    When I first started painting, an experienced artist told me that I’d start seeing the world differently. And I do! Just this morning I walked out the back and admired the light blue of the sky reflected in the (damp) shadows on my garage roof, next to the warm orange of the rising sun. I just can’t help it anymore. The funniest example, though, was when I noticed interesting, abstract shapes reflected on a toilet button: https://chrislt.art/2021/01/16/funny-the-things-you-notice-as-an-artist/ 😆

      Thank you. You know how sometimes you are just going along and things you have seen before suddenly present themselves differently? That is what happened here.
