This blog is in honor of my mother.
She taught me to see and to love color. Thanks, Mom!
For those who are looking for traditional crosses, the colors in this one are particularly beautiful: a soft, pale, luminous blue on a dark blue enamelled background. The central image is a star formed out of blue gemstones, four arranged in a cross-shape, and the others in the form of the Greek letter chi. Both are surrounded by golden rays, the only hint of any color but blue.
For people not interested in Christian imagery, this makes a beautiful tiled background.
A tiny, ivory colored cross set against a larger aqua cross, which is actually a part of an either larger cross. This numinous image contains a number of images, including four distinct arrows. The larger image consists in ribbons in a coral pink embellished with gold, and a bluer pink shading off into lavender. The corners are white, repeating the arrow image.
A cross made from decorated and folded white paper with a small hot center in blue, crimson, apricot, green, and gold. The predominant color is that particularly lavish shade of red infused with violet. Gentian purple? Mercurochrome, but the white central image really stands out. There are also significant touches of blue.
I'm so grateful to Ann Lamott for being there, brilliant, and a progressive Christian. Amen!
Crosses within crosses, in a jigsaw design. An ivory-tinted cross with complications and reiterations in maroon, sienna, midnight blue, a touch of violet, and kelly green. The background is a surprising pink.
