Oh the glow

pink energy
I am so excited about this challenge, thank you Hsin-Chen! Like Martha, these colors take me down memory lane. I have always loved fluorescent colors and it has been so much fun to have them back in fashion again.

I have one shirt that literally vibrates with color. Imagine my surprise when I searched the internet to find why fluorescent colors glow and discovered it has to do with energy! Reflected light beyond the visible spectrum, chemical reactions, energy release. Much too scientific for my brain, but fascinating none the less.

glow in the dark magic

The thread in my baby quilt glows in the dark, the hands on my watch illuminate the night and my puppy can always find her ball thanks to simple processes that seem like magic to me. I wonder if you can mix colors...if fluorescent yellow and fluorescent blue would make fluorescent green. I may just have to find out!

  1. Thanks for sharing, Lisa-Marie. The watch reminds me that I do have 1 or 2 watches like it in the 70's, and I still have them now! The color is still shining. They evoke lots of memories. Look forward to seeing your work!
