Back from Christmas and ready for some more fun....Mixed Media Monday - Use your least favorite colour

Hi Everyone....I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends....We were on the go and had a wonderful time with our families and friends....for me Christmas is in my heart every day of the year....everyone seems so much kinder at this time of year...and it almost seems like we actually pause and take everything in....I think we should pause more often and take a minute to be grateful each and every day...

I have really enjoyed meeting all of you and am grateful for your wonderful friendships...I look forward to meeting more of you and sharing in our daily lives.......so on with the latest MMM challenge.....this week's theme is to create using your least favorite colour...and I have an issue...I love every colour...the more the merrier....then there are shades and tints and I love them all too....and I know that white isn't a colour...but I love to use it in my home...but when I illustrate I can never just use black and white....so I created this special clown for you all...since I was always the class clown...lol....and created him in black and white for MMM and then added my version of him in colour.....hope you have a wonderful week!!!!

Hugs
Diana




The black and white seems to drain me...then I look at the colour piece and I feel alive again!!!

I love your white clown but I have to admit that the brilliant colours of the second version gave me a real buzz.
Wonderful work, Diane!!

Nicola said...

LOL about the class clown..I wouldn't have thought that of you..you are gorgeous..I'd of thought of you as the prom queen!

Cute clown..always sweet to have a fun side!

Sandy said...

Oh wow this is lovely.
So awesome and colorful clown. Love them.

marianne said...

Yes I love all colors too ;)
Both are nice but with colors everything is so much more fun!

Glad you had a wonderful christmas
Beautiful post Diana! Just like what you created

♥>M<

Diane said...

Diana, I've so enjoyed "meeting" you and your art too :-) I would have to agree that white would have to be your least favourite colour. It's easy to see - your clown is cute in white, but absolutely adorable in his bright colours! Diane

Limar said...

Well, I love both versions of your clown :) Very sweet!

johanna said...

first i only saw your b/w clown and my first thought was: after the challenge she will color it;)
then i scrolled down - lol - that´s what i expected from you! it turned out fantastic, diana!!

Hermine said...

Its lovely

indybev said...

What a statement for color. The black and white clown is charming, but the clown in glorious color --- WOW!

Alberta said...

Like you, color gives me energy and makes me happy. So, I also picked white this week. I love both your clowns and the fact that you WERE the class clown. Who would've guessed????

Fantastic piece, Diana!
Happy New Year 2010 to you.

Terri Kahrs said...

Oh, I too, feel that same way! Black and white depresses me!!! When Somerset had their black and white issue a few months ago, I couldn't look at it for more than a minute. I NEED color in my life, and the more the better!!! Happy to hear that you had a wonderful Christmas. Hugs, Terri

Faye said...

Your clown painting is so gorgeous, Diana. I will admit that the colorful one really grabs me! It is so beautiful.

Diane said...

Oh my gosh...what a little color can do. So glad you posted both pics. I lovew black & white but I have to say, the color really makes it pop. Beautiful work, as always! Hugs, Diane

soulbrush said...

so vibrant just like you.

WrightStuff said...

He looks so much happier with a bit of colour. I love the thought of you feeling all funny about leaving him black & white. You keep splashing the colour about - you do such a good job!

Rosie said...

I love both clowns, but the vibrant one says "Diana drew me!" like no other clown ever could!

Happy New Year!!

Kristin said...

Oh! I love it! I agree that he does look so much more animated in color - and I am with you - the more color the better!
Happy New Year to you and your family,
Kristin :)

Jack Foster said...

A belated Merry Christmas Diana, and I hope and pray for a blessed New Year for you and your loved ones.

Anne (cornucopia) said...

Both are fantastic!

Melissa and Emmitt said...

hi diana!
oh he is wonderful!
you always create such wonderful, creative pieces for the challenges each week!

Deborah said...

I looked at the black and white before reading the entire post, and thought, that's SO odd. Of course your least favorite color would be black and white! That must have been so difficult for you to do. Your beautiful spirit just oozes out of every pore, onto your beautiful, colorful art! I can't wait to watch Cole develop as an artist. Wishing you a Happy New Year...may you be blessed with a new baby. Actually, a dozen...we need more Diana's and Cole's in the world! **kisskiss** Deb

Cynthia DiBlasi said...

You are right about Black and White. Seems incomplete to me! I love the color piece, so vibrant!

Hope you and your family have a very Happy New Year! Here's to sharing our work and all of the artistic possibilities 2010 can give us!

Silvia said...

Wonderful. Love the bright colours.
