This week's theme for the drawing challenge is Swoon. 

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.

Beauty Flows.  Thank you Tammie for hosting.

And talking about swoon...also see my last post on Mark Rothko.

Ha, you better take a look at my blog, you'll understand. Swoon maroon makes me think about wallpaint from the building market. And i dont mean that bad, you also see the colour coffee, or ocean blue. I prefer your autumn colours, they are warm and they feel swoon (good). xx Joke.

I don't quite get abstract art but I like the colors you've used, as orange is a happy color.

have a great day.

Swoon -- yes, wonderful evocation of a response to deep emotion, art, music, poetry -- thank you for this post! And for the Rothko film, which I will watch over and over. Just saw one of his works up in Massachusetts last week. a humbling experience.
