Summer of Color Brown

When it comes to brown I think of my children's soulful brown eyes.  I think of dirt, I love to grow ,garden veggies, herbs and flowers.  I think of chocolate, a leather couch, the center of sunflowers, comfy shoes, my go to drink lately, Iced coffee. Brown seems to lend a warm, comfy feel. My evening didn't go as planned, such is life. After my daughter's Color Guide training, I took her driving. She is doing pretty well, but I'm a bundled of raw nerves. Yes, it makes me crave chocolate, lol.  So, between this event and unexpected company, I didn't get my brown art stitched or glued. Here it is as an arrangement; a collage of brown. I kind of like the worn elements and the thoughts that arrive looking at it. Sisters in France; I found this article in an old book I bought. I thought it looked interesting. Okay, in reality I was tired, but it does look interesting...


 To visit all of the beautiful brown art work; you can visit Kristin's blog, Twinkle, Twinkle~ I can't wait to see what everyone has done~ What comes to mind what you think of brown?

I think of my nephews' brown eyes, they look like smoky quartz. I think of the hot fudge in Dairy Queen's Peanut Buster Parfaits. And I think of my friend's hair. It's dark brown, long and silky.

Ooh, that does look interesting and I love their hats. Your collage has so many shades of brown, I love the antique look of everything in it. Hang in there with the driving and keep the air bags on!!lol I'll be doing that with my daughter very soon-not exactly excited about it either! :)

I think of sand and mud. Here on our island in some part is white sand and in other parts it's very reddish brown and we call it PEI mud. They even print it on T-shirts for the tourists to take away witht em because it's so famous.
anyway, there's my few thoughts on a little bit of brown.

Love the color brown--it reminds me of the solidity of things made of wood.
You are so creative!
And I think of UPS...

Yes, there are lots of lovely 'brown' things around us, not least of which is your 'arrangement'. Well done.

I must admit brown is my least favourite colour, but it does look nice in your work. The pics remind me of some photos I've found of my grandmother after she died. She also had some very stylish outfits from the 30's and 40's :)

Dog poo! Sorry, but I live with four dogs, I cant help myself, hee hee. I love love love your collage - I love old fashioned photos and it totally does look interesting, one wants to know their stories.
Rich, warm, tattered, and comfort are what brown reminds me of. I love the texture and depth of your collage, just beautiful. btw, the terror you are experiencing over your daughter learning to drive will pass, give it about 5 years or so (I'd love to say "only joking," but I'm not.
enJOY a lovely day,
Kimberly
