I would never have thought that I'd include grey in a list of favourite colours. I mean, grey? Of all colours, it's so, well, grey.
But then, not that long ago, I began to see the colour in a whole new light. And yes, I like days with overcast, grey skies... and I feel cozy when grey fog wraps itself over some early mornings. There is something calming...almost protective...about them.
I'm beginning to see that our world would be a lot 'greyer' if we didn't have this particular colour in the palette to add depth, richness, and yes, beauty, to the mosaic of our life's events. You see, you need some dark, some shadow, to show off light.
Grey may be one of those colours that on its own isn't so exciting, but perhaps it's like the added pinch of a secret ingredient that turns an okay dish into something marvelous... in a paint box kind of way.
Do you notice how, in the photo below, the overall grayish tones of the whole tapestry offsets the brighter colours? They pop out right out... and suddenly the whole painting comes alive. Don't you just love the contrast?
Guess that turns out to be a very unexpected glimpse of heaven!
Beautiful in its own way ~
I give you the colour GREY.
(And if you live in America, then will be spelled GRAY)
