I truly had a great time looking at all of the work for the Focus on Color show at the FCCA. There is an intimidating science to color that keeps me working with a somewhat limited palette. The smart ways that others combine or stack colors always causes me to consider introducing new ones in my work. Thanks to all of the artists who submitted work for the opportunity and inspiration.
