Color Studies

Open Color © Catherine Rutgers 2013Lately I’ve been feeling funny, like my tongue has got the cat. Lately I’ve been feeling more than nostalgic, traveling back and forth through history while simultaneously re-creating every little thing. And I must say, it has been thrilling but tiring. Or tiring but thrilling. Or … Lost. Utterly lost in a spiral of responsibility, doubt, media glut, indecision, existential anxiety. You name it. I’m in the throes of it.

But. Sometimes there’s only one thing to do. Return to the field of color, simply to play and work for the sake of it. Simply to take respite in something controllable, to face myriad choices, and yet, take a step, perhaps many steps, and then see what might happen from here.
