I love color. I have synesthesia, so I process color and sound and memory in a different way than many people do. I associate colors with certain memories and feelings, and sometimes sounds that don't always relate to the actual name or person or object. (I've written about this in TBYOML, btw.)
Sometimes when I paint, I exaggerate the colors to an unnatural level. I try to be mindful of skintone and facial expressions - those are usually part of an individual's identity, and my desire to add in some green could be perceived poorly. On the other hand, I recently completed a commission of two beautiful greyhounds done almost entirely with purples and oranges. Their owners were ecstatic.
I'm working on a series of cocktails for the holidays. They are mostly mono and duochromatic, from photographs I or my friends took. They feel more festive, more celebratory to me in this way.
