Life in Colour

“I found I could say things with colour and shapes
that I couldn’t say any other way;
things I had no words for.”
~ Georgia O’Keeffe

This is the final post for the colour challenge that I have hosted this year. I thank everyone who has visited this blog and those who have commented and shared their fabulous photos with me and the blogging community throughout the year. I wish you all a happy, safe, and healthy 2022 in which we can all create more blogging memories. 

And remember to embrace and enjoy all the wonderful colours in our lives... ❤🧡💛💚💙💜🤎

Travel Words will now be taking a short break, but you can still catch up with me over on Cornwall in Colours

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. It’s been a fun challenge, and I have loved seeing what other people have found. Now I need to concentrate on some old travels that I would like to write about.

  1. Wonderful Jude! Thank you for hosting the challenge. I loved every minute of it. Wishing you a very Happy and Healthy 2022. I linked my last post through to your Sunday colour challenge.

  2. With infinite patience you guided us through it. Thanks, Jude, for being a great blogger. but much more than that – a good friend. Wishing you the very best of good health and happiness next year.

  3. I found that the O’Keeffe quotation comes from an essay she wrote for an exhibition of her works at the Anderson Galleries in New York in 1923. The full paragraph was:

    “”I grew up pretty much as everyone else grows up and one day found myself saying to myself—I can’t live where I want to—I can’t go where I want to—I can’t do what I want to—I can’t even say what I want to. Schools and things that painters have taught me even keep me from painting as I want to. I decided I was a very stupid fool not to at least paint as I wanted to and say what I wanted to when I painted as that seemed to be the only thing I could do that didn’t concern anybody but myself—that was nobody’s business but my own. So these paintings and drawings happened and many others that are not here. I found I could say things with color and shapes
    that I couldn’t say in any other way—things I had no words for. Some of the wise men say it is not painting, some of them say it is. Art or not Art—they disagree. Some of them do not care.”

    1. It’s been a weird year that’s for sure. We can only hope 2022 sees the end of this virus, or at least we reach the point where we can live with it without so much damage.
