Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

Claude Monet


5 Comments to “Color”

  1. I love color, but in my fiction it’s a torment. Do I say puce or purplish gray? Blue or sapphire? Yellow or citron? (Not the best examples; I can’t think of anything exotic at the moment.)

    It depends on the POV character, usually, but I don’t want to use a word no one but a color fanatic would know.

  2. That’s a tough one, Deb!

    I usually try coming up with a smilie or metaphor & almost always end up feeling like I’m mangling a bagel to make it fit in a small square plate 🙂
