The thing about color . . .

It delights me when Canary Gallery is chosen as a venue for a celebration because I know someone creative will bring in a color for decor which miraculously jumps off canvases throughout the Gallery. This color may have never been revealed or obvious, however, adding the hue, whether in a cake, ribbons, table clothes or napkins, calls a variation out of the paintings. A perfect example from this past weekend was an amazing wedding cake by culinary artist Alethea Kendrick Cowie. The blush, ever so slightly in the icing (and linens) softly glowed in every work of art in the Gallery. That’s the thing about color: it brings happiness.
