I was looking at art work on different blogs and websites, and I wondered whether aging eyes see color differently? As we age, do colors look more muted, or grayed rather than vibrant and intense? The reason I am thinking about this question is because when viewing my own work, I've noticed a tendency to paint with less saturated or grayed color (using complements to gray/mute the intensity.) When I paint with more intense colors, it looks garish to me but when I see others work in more saturated color, I love it. So what do you think, does aging make a difference in the way we see and paint color?
When we look at artwork and its price tag, we often wonder how long it took the artist to paint it. Think of the number of hours/years of learning, practice, accumulated knowledge, skill and, in some cases, talent, that has brought the artist an apparently effortless ability to paint.
The electrical work in the house continues after a week's hiatus. Who would have thought there would be so much involved in rewiring a house. The power will be shut off this morning while the electric company moves a transformer and restrings wire (at least I think they will be doing the restringing this morning.) Who knows, it could be just a visit to see what all is needed. Our electrician will do his magic in transferring old to new loops, breaker boxes, etc, even though there is still more wiring to be strung in the attic for outlets, switch plates and ceiling lights. After the electrical is completed then the work on the new central heat and air system begins. Hopefully, that should only take a couple of days though.
