I was just outside.
Walking with hubby.
And getting our daily dose of Vitamin D.
My hubby says in a loud whisper, “Careful! Poisonous caterpillar!” He points to the wall. And I hop backwards instinctively.
And sure enough, it was one of them poisonous catepillars.
With lots of furs.
And vibrant stripes all around the body segments.
Curling and crawling as it went along.
I’m not sure how poisonous this one was. But some of them could put you in the hospital. So we made sure to stay far away.
In nature, insects have color indicators.
Some of them tell you “I got poyson!” by having really bright and vibrant stripes and colors. Like the yellow-striped snake my hubby ran over the other day with his car.
Some colors can be poisonous to your projects too.
If you aren’t deep into color theory.
Like how top bakeries ban their chefs from using the color “blue” in their food because it takes away your appetite.
I always prefer going black and white.
It’s always in trend. Works in happy or sad times. And I’m super talented at it (which, my hubby says, is a blessing because black and white art is WAY harder to pull off “properly” than color art).
The black and white piece I’m picking for today:
My classic poppy frame!
Because just like good “black and white” art, it’s always in trend, and works in both glad and sad times.
