My Favorite Color is RED

Though my favorite color is RED, one occasionally must be exposed to other colors.  I also like turquoise and periwinkle but don’t particularly like green so when I received an assignment to paint green it was a particularly difficult challenge.  My first attempt was not at all successful.  It was suggested that I do a lot of experimenting with combining yellows, blues and throw in some browns.  The exercise was very revealing.  I then went on to paint the next “green” assignment and was much more satisfied with it.  I need to listen to my own advise that I give my quilting students and that is “practice, practice. practice.”  I bet you have heard that before.
