COLOR OF SUCCESS
The color of success paints a preconceived picture for the public.
An unfilled vocation drains the color from a man’s entire existence. Honore de Balzac
Color is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, green, blue, and others. Color derives from the spectrum of light. Wikipedia
A big area of Cosmetic Dentistry is Bleaching and Whitening of Teeth. The smile can be enhanced with
products that are safe. The goal is not to over promise what the home care bleaching kits can do.
The key for delivery of the whitening gel to the teeth is a customized tray made in the dental office.
With the tray, you can retreat your teeth with multiple applications to hold the gains made in the
tooth whitening process. The effect of this process can boost your self confidence. Everyone wants a beautiful smile.
This evening after work, I’ll meet friends for libation. I’m going to wear my favorite sports jacket, a cranberry wool blazer. Wearing it makes me feel that I’m going to have fun tonight.
Color is one of the most important tools we have for setting a mood. Think of the colors of fall, spring flowers, a rainbow, and winter’s wonder land. These all evoke very colorful images.
Come and escape with me to a place in your mind where the colors are so rich and vibrant your senses come alive.
The blazer, very classic in style, draws compliments every time it is worn. What was it about that jacket none of my other jackets could do? The cranberry blazer made the statement,
“I’m going to have fun tonight,” creating a certain mood. But I would not wear the jacket to a business meeting or a funeral. More serious attire would be required for the other events.
Color is one of the most important tools we have for a mood. Colors have traditional and regional meanings. We have summer and winter wedding colors, yet the bride being the main
focal point, still wears white all year round. To set the mood in a room at home, we light candles, build a fire, or now a days push a button and whoolah, the fireplace ignites.
I often shoot photographs in a place known as Kauffman Gardens. The flowers are changed by the garden staff each season. Some of my best pictures are from the colors of Spring.
Professional black and white film has great contrast of color, one of the reasons black and white photography still takes it’s place along side color photography.
Black and white prints are timeless. They seem to sell well after the wedding has come and gone.
Color can set your mood and energy level. When we use yellow it adds cheer to a room. Red invigorates us. Cool colors such as sage, green and sky blue present a calming
ambiance. These colors can chill a room. To de-stress think neutrals such as pale gray, taupe and beige which exert a restful influence. They work well in a library, media room or family room.
Set a young, playful mood with primary colors. They’re great in children’s rooms or play rooms. Paint walls dark, rich colors such as deep taupe, brick red, slate gray or sapphire blue to set a formal, sophisticated tone and add a sense of drama. A formal dining room or living room is a good candidate. Avoid bright white so as not to create a sterile operating room atmosphere.
In most environments a white with a touch of rose, ivory or gray is more comforting. Remember cool colors recede, making a room seem larger, and warm colors advance making a room smaller.
I saw a movie today,” Local Color,” about a young 18 year old artist meeting a Russian master Impressionist. They went to the country side of Pennsylvania for the Summer.
Nickolai, the master, said, “Be expressive, life is too short. I was here on this planet.” In nature the apprentice found freedom and solitude where he could concentrate on art.
Nickolai was attempting to drown out his sorrows in vodka. He had lost his wife who he loved dearly. In the loss of his most precious friendship, he also lost his passion for his art.
He had the young lad do chores around the summer home to make him humble to life. The apprentice came to paint and initially did not understand the life lesson.
The movie brought out that art is a common ground that connects us all. It’s the beauty that keeps us alive. Nickolai had classical training and a wicked edge for the truth.
The apprentice could talk about the wind blowing through the trees but did not know how to paint it. Nickolai taught him how to create from his thoughts.
It is unnecessary to apologize for what you truly want to express within your art form. Following your heart will prevent anyone from talking you out of what you want to be or do in life.
He unbraided the young artist’s thoughts of greatness. The unbraiding was the start of his re-education in mastering his art form. When we have an I-know-it-all-attitude, it’s difficult to
learn new ideas. Do not allow the downward spiral of life to catch you in it’s whirlpool. Stay true to your dream no matter what is hurled at you.
The apprentice helped the master to rediscover his passion. After the apprentice was taken down to his most basic form, a world was opened to him, one of creative expression.
When we follow our passions, we take others with us. Believe in yourself and reach out for others and help them. Finding your way through this world is a very difficult task unless you stay
true to your passion. Reach for those who can help you along the way. The Bible says Ask and you shall receive.
Our teachers leave us guiding thoughts to show us the way.
The color of success for the artist is mastery of his art form.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset. Rabindranath Tagore
The color of success is a well written post that others can use to help light their paths along
