Greetings and Salutations

Today was a beautiful day. I got up late, spent some quality time with my plants on my patio, and took a ride on my scooter with my boyfriend on his motorcycle to White Rock Lake. This place never ceases to amaze me with its beauty. The lake is always calm and serene, with lush trees and flowers everywhere, with gaggles of geese and ducks all around. I had never visited White Rock until a few months ago, and was sorry I had neglected it before. This past summer, riding around the lake has been almost a weekly ritual and in part has inspired me to start this blog.

So what is this blog about? Color Theory will serve as a place for me to show you what inspires me and in turn what I am inspired to make. I also want to experiment with color palettes, and would love to get your feedback.

To start things off, this is me at White Rock Lake with my scooter:

And here is a photo of the lake, with a palette to go with it:

What are your thoughts? I think these colors feel very serene and remind me of brisk fall mornings. I'm happy fall is coming. Right now the weather is getting to the stage where it is cool in the morning and uncomfortably hot by afternoon. Maybe I will use this palette to knit a light scarf.


Edit: As it turns out, this blog is not going to be at all about color, but more about the things I enjoy making and doing, and about enjoying the little things in life.
