Gallery: a pop of colour to brighten the darkness

With colour one obtains an energy that seems to stem from witchcraft

Henri Matisse

How true is that?! And this too:

Colour is a power which directly influences the soul

Wassily Kandinsky

Bright colours have the power to lift the spirits just as sunshine does. Recently Ann Christine shared some Thursday Thoughts about the need for light and colour in the depths of winter. Her gallery of bright images gave me such a lift that decided to emulate her with my own uplifting (I hope) selection of colour. And like her I’ve opted to skim through my archives for a random set with the brightest colours I could find. I hope you enjoy them!
