"Color! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams." ~ Paul GauguinShades of pink; deep and hot, pale and delicate; blended stripes against the bold background. Cool greens in shadow dark, punched with slivers of light as if from within the flower's center. Swirls of color so different, yet together remind me of childhood dreams; of sleeping beauties on soft downy beds strewn with delicate petals; of a white stallion whose hooves stir petals and leaves as it prances; of a prince who awakens her with a kiss; of light and swirls of color as all rejoice. How does color speak to you in your dreams?
