An Art Lesson

In art color theory classes, you learn about the color wheel. How red, yellow and blue are the primary colors, and how when you pair those colors together (like red + yellow) you get the secondary colors green, purple, and orange. And then the complimentary colors are the ones across from each other on the color wheel, like orange and blue, or red and green.

And then you have my outfit: yellow and magenta. And I guess you could kind of say it works because digital media uses magenta, yellow, and cyan as their primary colors, which they call the subtractive primaries, but really who knows about that stuff? And who cares about studying all this anyway? It all gets complicated and the colors start blending together and your eyes begin to cross from staring at too many colors and….let’s just pretend that yellow and magenta were meant to be together. OK?

And you thought your college major was hard.

By the way, Peanut has discovered how to use the camera remote. I have about fifty pictures pretty much identical to this one. I guess he wants to participate in the 21 day challenge too…
