Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.
I wish I was artistic, I can't even draw stick men properly. I appreciate all things arty but have no ability in that direction, I often look at my favourites, the Irish artist Paul Henry's paintings and try to imagine how he has created the clouds for example and think I may have a go one day. I am often tempted to try abstract paintings in blocks of colour as sometimes I feel the need - perhaps I am in need of the qualities of particular colours in my life at certain times. I do believe in colour therapy, I always wear red shoes, it's an energy thing!
I love impressionist paintings and I have to thank a fellow blogger, Bouddica for introducing me to the boy they are calling Britian’s Mini Monet.
Kieron Williamson is just seven years old and here are some examples of his work. When I first saw them all I could say was ‘Wow’. They are amazing in the true sense of the word because they have been created by a child but they would be outstanding even if an adult had painted them. Kieron lives in Norfolk which is a part of the UK that has influenced many painters, perhaps it is something to do with the vast skies and the quality of the light there. But Kieron has surely been born with a precious gift.

If you were a colour, what would you be?
