Weekly Photo Challenge – Hue of You

Tags : 

I created this artwork very late last night for a fun competition (creating a photo to look like a LeRoy Neiman painting) but it really does fit perfectly for this week’s challenge as the hue of me!

Firstly, I painted this with complete childlike abandonment with no regard for colour, keeping within the lines or reality. That in a way describes me to a tee. I like to have fun, but I’m not reckless. I do not follow the rules of society as most of them do not make sense to me. Things like:

  • not wearing a ring on the third finger of your left hand if you’re not engaged or married.
  • not wearing white after Labour day.
  • if you don’t cry when a relationship is over, you cannot possibly have been in love.
  • feeding your kids a huge banana split for supper, instead of something healthy (not everyday of course!).
  • wanting to be with a partner, as opposed to needing to be.
  • having matching plates and glasses at the dinner table, why it’s more fun when nothing matches.

Anyway you get my point.

Secondly, the bright colour represents how I look at life. Don’t take me wrong, like most of us I am sure, I’ve been round the block a few times with life flipping back and forth between amazing and downright ugly. I have a finely tuned sense of humour and have learned to see the funny side (and lessons) in most things. Plus the numerous array of different colours is great for representing who I am as a person. What I mean by that is….I do not have a ‘type’. I am honestly a blend of all types, a multitude of colours and flavours, which men some people find confusing, because I am hard to predict.
