There is art: Starting a Blog
What is Wondering in Color and am I blogging? Starting Wondering in Color was to have a creative outlet. I stated in my last post how Franci and I wanted to be able to share our journey and progress with There is Art, rather than just share photos, we want to share stories as well.
The idea for calling this blog Wondering in Color is because I can relate with the quote from Georgia O'Keeffe "I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for." I enjoy drawing/painting and playing with colors. I like to try and create feelings with color and try to paint a picture of what crisp fall days smell like, the feeling of twilight during long summer nights, and create makeup looks with crazy color combinations to inspire others. This is what sparked the idea for Wondering in Color, where I'll share, best as my visual oriented mind will let me, to let you into a bit of my life.
The idea of blogging with There is art also ties into the idea that we want to value progress. This comes with sharing a post weekly, and maybe not having time to do something time-consuming or overly creative, but still sharing what we tried to do, or maybe a long-term goal we'll be working on that's not finished and perfected. Instead of just having curated stories with the highlights of our weeks, maybe we'll share a photo that didn't turn out that well, or just share what we practiced in hope to further a skill. This is all part of the idea that we want to live creatively, find beauty and share it with all of you.
We hope you'll join us and we'll be sharing what we're working on and where we found There is art in our next post.
