I needed this Viviva Colorsheet neutral today. Slate Black is dark charcoal on the cool side of gray and neutralizes any color mixed with. I have a close eye on a robin's nest that is well within my view on my way to the garage and while I try not to disturb mother robin, I just can't help peeking. This amazing process from laying the brilliant blue eggs to the hatch of little wrinkled fuzzy babies is a sight to behold. I feel honored to be a witness to the daily miracles of this robin family. Having Slate Black in my arsenal of colors today was exactly what I needed to help express all the colors, wrinkles and bird beginnings happening in that nest.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
