Searching For Roy G Biv Again


Last year's search for Roy G Biv was so much fun, I've decided to play again!  Jennifer Coyne Qudeen and Julie Booth are once again hosting this year-long, color-drenched blog hop. As you may know, the R in the mnemonic ROY G BIV stands for Red, the first color in the spectrum of visible light, better known as the rainbow.

It was easy to find lots of reds in the bright store displays during the holidays...



The eye is so easily drawn to all this sparkly stuff...



... the shiny silvers and golds and of course REDs...




The cold weather at this time of year has me missing one of my favorite warm-weather activities...


... Kayaking!


It just so happens my kayak is red...


... as is this small mixed-media piece called Strange Weather...




... and one called Glimpses, which showcases a completely different shade of red.




Make sure you hop over to Jennifer's or Julie's blogs to check out all the other reds!

  3. What a great selection of reds - those are some Christmas baubles!! The kayak makes me think of summer - one of the few sporty things I enjoy - yours is a gorgeous shade of red. And your artwork is beautifully mysterious - I especially like Strange Weather...

  7. I was oohing and aahing over your wonderful Christmas reds when the kayak came into view. Isn't kayaking great? I took my husband's out on the Currituck Sound this summer. It was exquisite.

    Enjoy!
