I like pretty colors as much as the next girl, however what I love even more than a perfectly balanced purplish grey are the words paint companies come up with to describe it.
Corn silk yellow, ice sculpture blue, buttered yam orange, Queen Anne pink and of course Misty Memories Violet.
Leafing through a catalog of paint chips is like leafing through catalog of metaphors, adjectives, and similes. And yes, sometimes when I’m feeling a little creatively drained, I go in there and steal a few. I’m sure Mr. Moore wouldn’t mind.
So thank you paint chips, you inspire me.
