“Orange You Glad I’m Different?”

I am taking a class on color and design at MQResources. One of the assignments was to make a colorwheel.

My friends always tease me about being different. I view the world
differently than lots of folks I guess. Good, or bad, that’s the way
I came to this world.

My color wheel reflects that. I purposely have yellow at 9 oclock
rather than 12. It somehow makes sense to me there. We had to choose
a shape for the colors, and could use black or white for the
background. I have always been intrigued by Kokopelli, and decided to
use him as my “shape”. I used both black and white for my background.

I also love to celebrate diversity…. and dancing to a different
drummer. Or flutist. “Orange You Glad I’m Different?”

    Fabulous! I am certainly not surprised at your color wheel. In fact, I think it looks perfectly normal ! (for you)

    It’s wonderful Gayle. I would have NEVER thought of any of it, and I’m jealous that I didn’t!
