The Gray Inukshuk

Inukshuk Sculpture, Nanaimo

In some parts of the world, the ocean is never a beautiful aqua blue. In fact, sometimes it’s downright dingy. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful anyway.

And what better backdrop for a rock sculpture than moody gray?

Pure White Beauty

Forgotten Land Prince Art Doll by Elze

When you see something that is a perfect, clean white, do you have the urge to cover it with color?  Do you look at plain apartment walls and imagine brushing on the paint?  Does fresh paper make your fingers itch for markers and pencils?  Or perhaps you view a beautiful white sculpture and feel that it is perfect just the way it is.

According to some personality analyses, people who like the color white tend to prefer it over all other colors.  Perhaps this is because white is really all of them at once, and there’s no need to choose a second favorite.

How do you like your spectrum – all in one beam or in a fan of color?

A Blue Fairy

WIP: Blue Fey
Created by Faerydae.

Nothing says extraordinary like blue skin! Artists often use colorful skin tones to accentuate a character’s fantastic nature. Perhaps we are more willing to believe that a fairy or alien is not of this world of they are green, or orange, or blue.

This piece is truly lovely. The combination of blueness, gems, and extra long antennae really make this fairy something special.
