love love love this photo,

posted by the sartorialist on monday.

it reminds me of fabric stores and the classroom in the theatre building where i took costume construction during college, and other locales where one can’t help but find themselves awash in hue. when i make art i usually find myself creating line drawings in ink or shadowy charcoal compositions, always in black and white, but whenever i’m at a museum i’m always drawn to the most colorful pieces, and i spend hours salivating in front of van gogh, rothko, and matisse, vowing to incorporate more color the next time i have a canvas in front of me.

Mark Rothko. Untitled. (1968)

(untitled, mark rothko)

spring is great because flowers bloom blah blah blah but the season also has such a nice light about it, making those flowers all the more beautiful but also lending a special sheen to rusty basketball hoops and not-yet-blooming trees and other previously dingy looking items that are really so colorful and beautiful if you take the time to look. few things are more inspirational than bright colors and odd color combinations, so LOOK AROUND and soak it in.
