Under The Influence

|Australia's Crimson Rosella Feathers|

Changing gears a bit I thought I'd share with you one example that inspires as well as drives me.  Color in nature is so, well, amazing.  There are so many things in the outside world that are the most amazing color.  When you witness these colors it makes you say "look at that" to yourself or to those around you.  Seeing color that is not manmade is a true spectacle.  Nature definitely puts on a show.  However, that show is not always obvious or present.  Sometimes you have to allow yourself to be taken in by it.

I found this arrangement of stunning feathers while walking around my mother-in-law's place outside of Sydney.  The color was so vivid it almost didn't seem real.  Seeing something like this always makes me think about the color in my everyday experience.  There are so many colors in the plants I see.  I see so many colors when I just take the time to notice.  And what does color do for me?  Well, as cheesy as it sounds, color makes me very happy.  It sets the tone of my mood and influences me.  There is something so engaging about it.  So as The Plant Provocateur, I always look for color and I'm talking all color.  As one of the many components of beauty it inspires how I live, work, and feel.

Look around you.  Allow yourself to really see color.  How does it make you feel?  Let it inspire you.
