Color Addiction….


Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings

I am a certified color junkie.  Ever since I can remember colors were never bright enough for me.  There were never enough in my environment to satisfy me.  The world was boring and I’ve always wanted more.  It’s why you just don’t see muted pastels in my art (or maybe you do).  I use the brightest and most vibrant colors I can find and mix, but you may not see all of them.  And now there may be a scientific explanation for my extreme color cravings.  An unknown number of women may perceive 
millions of colors invisible to the rest of us.  These women have four cones in their eye for detecting colors.  The vast majority of people only have three.  I am not a scientist, so I will just post a link (some text in this blog is referenced from this article):

Area 54 / Unique Alien Art


Heart of Art Blog

Mexico is a hot spot for UFO activity. In this artwork the reputation of alien visitation is fantasized and showcased in a comical way.

I had a great time with this theme, especially the cows being abducted. Having an Alien painted like a sugar skull with a spider web on his head is something you never see that often. This artwork encompasses everything I enjoy. Hope you enjoy it too and thanks for supporting…
