Inspired by new and the expecting of new, is WHOLESOME by General Paints. A colour that makes me think of baby chicks, soft and yellow. The new egg from the farm - organic textures and purity.
The colour story is made up by looking at the colour number, with the W it defines a White Paint base colour. In addition, its had the pure hue YELLOW, and red. The saturation of this hue is light and bold. The mood is renew, spiritual, happy, comfort and soft glow.
This week I visited with one of my nieces, who told me of her class project and the expecting of baby chicks hatching. How exciting! She burst with smiles telling me of the one chick who was stuck in the egg shell, and was too tired to pull his bum out. But maybe later, after it had a sleep - how precious! Then she continued to tour me through the class and show me the new baby chicks, that 'made it out'! They were a beautiful shade of yellow, fuzzy and not very well coordinated -stumping about under the heat lamp. Not quite sure of their steps yet. We laughed at them being so curious with each other, and us.
As we celebrate Easter this weekend, gather with family and friends - lets look to the simplicity in life and each other. The foods, the Egg rituals from painting to hunts, take a moment to indulge in wholesome that makes us smile, and puts love in your heart. That sense of comfort and courage, and reflect on where it could take us anew on the journey ahead.
Hoppy Easter everyone,
