How Do You See The World?

The world is colorful and colorless at the same time. What is your take?

Am reminded of Shakespeare here....."all the worlds a stage.....with players who have their exits and their entrances".......not an exact quote.....but meanwhile I see it as a school where we can choose (if we're lucky enough) where we want to go and how creative we'd like to be......and choice is the operative word here.

 

Hey this has inspired me to update my profile pic to my "painty hands" one!
As wonderful as God's world already is, an artist feels the urge to "beautify."

Put it this way: I'm forever looking for that wardrobe door, that second star to the right, or that yellow brick road to get me the heck outta here.

Sorry but I can't see the colorless part... it all looks like a marvelous colorful masterpiece by the best artist of all.

I like it, colorless, it is not.

I would love to believe that I see the world with unfettered eyes.

I see the world amazingly beautiful.

Despite us.

I guess I watch too many nature documentaries. Some parts of this world have beauty. But this is not a kindly world. To anyone. And that is why art exists. Because humans can see all the ugliness and brutality in all of creation. We need respite from it. Art can help us focus on the better parts of existence and escape from the rest. At least for a moment. And that's good. Because we humans have a raw deal. To be aware of everything, including our own inescapable deaths, our finite lives with all our errors and mistakes and no do-overs. But through art, especially fiction, we can live many lives. Have adventures and accomplishments we'll never experience in reality. So art's good for something, I suppose...

Firstly, love this image..and yes, I do see that the world IS "in our hands" and here.. it is portrayed beautifully in the image as you have presented it. As humans we have not changed much over time, but certainly the cultures and technology around the world has and will continue to do so; we must adapt and be skilled at change and hopefully see the goodness and beauty that does surround us, in spite or despite the ugly and evil.

I see it in colour, in contrast, in darkness and in light.

This image does inspire Michelle. yet in some ways I'm still waiting for a boost in inspiration....

 

There is so much beauty and color in this World and yet for some there is pain and suffering....

Since I'm color blind with many colors, I find the world a bit bland. I have to work hard to make it interesting to look at actually. Nature is beautiful to me though.

I love colors and there are spots in the world that have an abundance of them and others are barren. Each in its own beauty. My son has some color blindness which made me more aware of the challenges you have Lisa. I am teaching a color and design course and one of the readings is on how to deal with color blindness as an artist.

I’ve learned to accept the positive suggestions and deny the negative suggestions.

Mother Nature is my Favorite Artist. That is all I really need to see for my landscape/seascape art.

(I had written a much longer response a couple hours ago - but decided to use it for a blog post instead.)

Iris, color blind people adapt very amazingly well. I had no idea I was color blind until I couldn't pass the depth perception driving/crane and rigging/forklifting test which shows red and green shapes floating in space.

Since I can't see the red and green, I failed, and failed again, and again...no hope of passing this eye test. LOL. Life is good, it hasn't stopped me from driving, working or loving to paint because I can see different tonal values as well as illuminations and there are many colors I can see. For example, I see blue and purple well and indigo is my favorite! What more do I need? Yellow is the most used color in my paintings.

I use a lot of green and red too, but I have no idea how others see those colors in my work. It's probably a bit off, but what do I care? I don't.

Also, black and white in this world, to me, is just absolutely stunning. If I could achieve a minimalistic black and white interior home, I would! For those of you who do black and white art, KUDOS to you!

Bill, just read your blog, and shared. Absolutely beautiful work!!

I love crisp black and white too, Lisa, especially when accented with a pop of bright color.

There's a furniture company called Mackenzie-Childs that specializes in whimsical decor. A lot of the furniture is hand-painted. I have bought from them, been gifted from them, and I highly recommend them. Very inspirational.

A slate of white.
That is how most people on the East coast of the US will see the world this weekend.
Even Alabama is getting snow !

Ditto what Abbie said, and hats off to Lucia.

I see a world full of stuff, meaningless stuff. Empty shelves? Not enough stuff. Empty life? Clearly, I need more stuff. I see a world of stuff and devoid of meaning. How's that for cheery?

You are too kind, Janine!

Sometimes miracles happen and I manage to say something without having to come back to delete it!
