This first thing I thought when I saw today's blog writing prompt - Shades of Grey - was "lack of color." Maybe it's being here at my studio in the woods on another cloudy frozen day. I certainly rarely work with grey or even black and white in my art. Color is very important to what I have to say.
But the metaphor of seeing myself and the world in shades of grey is very different. It's how I try to view the larger world - allowing more variation and diversity while avoiding the "love this - hate that" mind. The choices of either black or white are so limiting. And isn't grey just so lovely sometimes?
