2018 Color Trends – Elle Decor
There’s a new minimalist color palette in town, and it doesn’t involve grey.

 

 

“Green is an omnipresent hue around the world, the natural hue of grass and foliage. It has been also widely used in architecture, graphics and design and once you start looking for it, you will start seeing it everywhere.”   –D. Fairweather, gallerist/ Allied Member, A.S.I.D. (1986-2018), American Society of Interior Designers  

A green paint palette

 

Bringing green into your life, in fresh greens or in color, brightens your outlook and sets your mind in a warm, welcoming mood.  More than anything, embracing the color green is about loving nature and growth. ”  –D. Fairweather, gallerist/ OSU  Master  Gardener (2006).

 

 

 

Favorite shades of greens, Kate Brodsky designer/ Elle Decor

  • Benjamin Moore’s Oak Grove: “Everything looks good against it.”
  • Benjamin Moore’s Ponderosa Pine:  “This is the color of everything in my library, on the bookcases and  in the trim. The perfect green to be cocooned in.”
  • Benjamin Moore’s Courtyard Green:  “About as blue as I go.  It is the color of much of the cabinetry in my kitchen.”

 

Many green colors projected for interior design in 2018! The trend is for more natural hues, with new interesting shades of sage, celery and artichoke greens. Love them!

Greenery is the symbol of new beginnings, a refreshing and revitalizing shade of green with a small dose of grey. This fresh and zesty sage-green shade evokes the first days of spring, talks about nature’s greens revive, and it is a call for people to take a deep breath and reinvigorate.

Tricorn Black

 

And, too, Sherwin-Williams’s Tricorn Black.  “A green so dark is it almost black.  It is the color of the Fairweather front door, a feature wall inside the gallery and the bookcases.” –D. Fairweather

SEEK, an art exhibition.

December 2017 

As the hectic holiday season approaches, we seek beauty in nature, in its solitude and silence, as well as seek   time with family and friends.

Seek, inquire, search for, pursue, long for, wish for, desire, look for, expect from.

Featuring Duane Bolster, master harp builder and his harp petting zoo. For nearly 50 years, he worked in operating rooms and Intensive Care Units. He witnessed the wonderful healing and soothing effects that harp music had on the children he cared for, and on their parents. He won The Hero award from CCA “For Creating a Magnificent Harp for the Music Program”.

 

In addition, Oregon artist Renee Rowe, inspired by the beauty of nature, produces abstract art by following her heart. For the artist, celebrating art and life are inseparable.

Update:

A federal agency and five conservation groups have put together a reward totaling $15,500 for information on the illegal killing of an Oregon wolf in Klamath County.  The wolf, OR-33, died of gunshot wounds in late April but the case was not confirmed until October following tests on the wolf’s DNA.

It is a violation of the federal Endangered Species Act to kill a gray wolf in the western two-thirds of Oregon, along with a violation of Oregon state game laws.

The wolf’s carcass was found about 20 miles northwest of Klamath Falls in Fremont-Winema National Forest, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials said.

“This is a heartbreaking loss for Oregon’s wolves,” said Amaroq Weiss, West Coast wolf advocate at the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the groups that contributed money.

“Wolf recovery in Oregon depends on wolves like OR-33 making their way west and thriving, so his death is a major setback. We hope someone will do the right thing and come forward with information.”

OR-33 was a 4-year-old male gray wolf that dispersed from northeast Oregon’s Imnaha Pack to southwest Oregon, where he became well known.  He was seen by multiple residents, and his photo was captured by a hunter’s trail camera near Emigrant Reservoir, about six miles southeast of Ashland.

“This wolf is acting like David Lee Roth,” said Greg Roberts, a media personality in Southern Oregon said at the time. “I’ve had eight people in Ashland say that they’ve seen him around their property.”

“Hurt No Living Thing”

 

Hurt no living thing;

Ladybird, nor butterfly,

Nor moth with dusty wing,

Not cricket chirping cheerily,

Nor grasshopper so light of leap,

Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,

Nor harmless worms that creep.

— Christina Rossetti

During the opening reception of SHADOWS, Gregory Bell offered an artist talk about the encaustic works depicting the wildlife found in coastal habitat of the area.

 

 

 

 

And, too, during the SHADOWS reception,  the artist was  inspired by FLYNN,   “the handsomest Kestrel around and one of the  WCNC Ambassador Birds!”    I will paint FLYNN next! — Gregory Bell 

 

At the opening reception of  SHADOWS on October 7th there was an  auction  of selected Neal Maine images.  More than $300 was raised in less than five minutes to benefit the  WCNC!!!

Lisa Wiser is a visual artist living and working in Oregon. She draws inspiration from the scenic northwest, travel adventures and reading novels to create watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media paintings. Also an avid photographer, she chronicles her visual inspirations as she records obscure landscapes, architectural details, and other intriguing painting subjects.

 

Pursuits in life drawing and plein air painting confirms that she prefers a direct association with her subjects while working from life both outdoors or in the studio.

 

 

“The foundation of my work is a keen interest in the concept of structure in both the natural and built environment. My primary interest is capturing landscape scenes that visually articulate my emotional response upon approaching the scene.”–Lisa Wiser

Tuned just for Shirley 88 to A-440 concert pitch.

 

Q:  What is concert pitch?

A:  Concert Pitch is usually referred to as A-440. The A is the A above middle C, and the 440 is a measure of frequency of vibration. Put it together and the A above middle C in a concert pitched piano will vibrate exactly 440 times per second. All other notes are mathematically derived from this reference pitch. When all strings are tuned to their predetermined frequency the whole piano is “at concert pitch”.

The American Standards Association recommended that the A above middle C be tuned to 440 Hz. This standard was taken up by the International Organization for Standardization in 1955 and has served as the audio frequency reference for the calibration of acoustic equipment and the tuning of pianos, violins, and other musical instruments.
