I adore color. And hues. And shades. And pigments. And playing.
With colors we illuminate, infuse, enliven, emblazon, darken, embellish, and stain the world that is around us. Color helps define our surroundings and informs us in ways that we don’t fully yet understand. They influence our moods and impact our interactions.
That’s why the task of coming up with custom color charts for our plasters is one of my favorite things to do. My latest creation I termed Smokey Mountain Morning. It’s a beautiful light blue with grey undertones…reminds me of the cool, early mornings in the Great Smokey Mountains…just before the sun has become strong enough in the sky to burn off the mist that hovers along the tree line.
