It might be a color name. But it isn't. Well, if you Google it in combination with
a color name, you get nice results , like swoon maroon. And wandering through
the wikipedia List of colors you'll find beautiful names.
I also found Color Thesaurus, a collection of 12 color charts that list the correct
names of all shades, created by Ingrid Sundberg, a writer and illustrator.
Back to where I begun. Swoon as a color.
Some weeks ago I worked on a series of mosaics that could be seen
on my worktable. They were inspired by the colors of autumn.
I decided to call them "the swoon orange series".
Each 12,5 x 12,5 cm, collage, paint, mono-type.
