“Outside books, we avoid colorful characters.” ―Mason Cooley


Ghosts fear it. Crooks smell it. Clowns wear it. Mimes yell it. Painters smear it.

“I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.”

Joan Miro


Strippers bare it. Merchants sell it. Lovers share it. Preachers quell it. Toreros dare it.

“The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.―

Marcus Aurelius

Curtains sheer it. Doors bell it. Gates bar it. Urns indwell it. Shelves bear it.

“You know creators, composers, need a palette for life, a color for life.”

Mstislav Rostropovich

The same way day’s rays cover night, color hides in plain sight.

“With the brush we merely tint, while the imagination alone produces colour.”

Theodore Gericault
