color in the sun

In the midst of a generally chilly and grey spring, the sun came out for  a few dazzling days this week, and I went around exploring bits of Winston Salem, NC neighborhoods.  In contrast, I was also viewing a highly charged, color saturated exhibition at SECCA (more on that shortly), and could not resist comparing the colors I marveled at in the museum with the funky resale shops nearby.  Here is Cookie’s Shabby Tiques, on Reynolda Street near SECCA.  Saturated mustard and verdigris, with slashes of primary colors against an intensely blue sky.

And to follow the palette, a lush painting by Tomory Dodge, showing at SECCA.
