What color is it anyway?

So, you must have one of those friends in the group who is obsessive about colors. They call lemon yellow lemon yellow and maroon a maroon. In that scenario, if you are a person like me who knows only the basic names of colors, and calls a lemon yellow- yellow and maroon- red then you can understand how troubled you get when your ignorance is ridiculed to your utmost dismay.

I have found a solution for it. I have noticed there is only one who will challenge your naive claims and others will join the bandwagon to pull your legs. So, I have cracked the secret of naming the various shades of colors. And the answer is- start being creative!

Next time you wear a blue t shirt, flaunt it with a statement like,’.. I love this Madagascar blue…you know, I liked it the moment I spotted it’ and when you see your friend wearing a green shade, compliment ‘..oh I like this shade of ginger green’ Oh you can also use the name of your favourite flavour to add it to any color shade , ‘.. where did you get this tangy brown shoes, looks amazing!’

I am liking this approach! I discovered everyone joins the bandwagon when you say it with conviction! You will establish yourself as a color specialist and you will feel wickedly pleased with it!

And hey,by the way, I really loved this Canterbury White shade on your room’s wall! ūüėČ Have a great weekend!

On the home page, you scroll down to see the name of the artists.You click on anyone of them and find yourself adorning their creations, almost like in a museum, while intermittently you get to read their interview,  between the subsequent images.

I lost my sense of time exploring this enamoring museum of arts! I am excited and eager to invite you all to visit this page! I am sure you will love it! Although most of the interviews are dated 2014, so I guess may be I found it late and most of you might have been there already. Nonetheless, I am sure revisiting it will be as satisfying as ever!

Thank you so much!
