It’s July 4.

And it’s little bit wet out.

It’s been more than a little bit wet now for days. For the loudest time of year normally, not so noisy this year. It’s pouring rain.

Soggy. Like my paper towel where – yes, I’m experimenting with color. And, yes, the colors do look quite a bit different when applied to silk:

These are the two options I’m considering. You’re seeing them in morning light. In evening light, the bottom one is even more somber.

But what’s so fun about dyes. About color. Is that it can change so much: with a different material and a different light. And who knows how similarly each of us sees those variations?

What to wonder on this quiet Fourth of July.
