I neglected to mention on my last post that Astrid and I were off to Italy the next day, March 24th, for an 11-day vacation! THIS is the 11th day, in Verano, (we started off first with 7 days in Venice) and I actually have the time to catch up on March's Saturdays and Sundays before we head for home tomorrow.

My Saturday's Color posts on Facebook for March:

From my Kaleido Color book on black-background paper, I learn how much "black" can make
colors look good. I suppose there's a little sermon in there somewhere?

With Spring well on the way and St. Paddy's Day coming, I'm thinking GREEN. YUP.
I especially like coloring all the black lines in between the glass. Weird, I know.

With this mandala, I started first with black and had a long time to think
about the one other color I'd add: GREEN. Yes, in honor of St. Paddy's Day.
With only 4K+/- Irish expats in the Netherlands, the Dutch don't celebrate it like we Americans.
So for those of you who do, enjoy more green for your weekend.

I love the yellows and yellow-greens of early spring, which I chose for this mini-mandala (6 x 6).
Now it's time to pack! Astrid and I return home from Italy tomorrow morning.
I guess you know what's in store for you, right?!
