The Need for Color

The thing that is most commented on here and in my personal life is my use of color. I have said to people before that I just don’t feel right if I don’t surround myself with color or wear color. My home is colorful and there is art all around me. So I found this super short documentary on Jim Carrey and his artwork and need for color absolutely fascinating.


I knew he was an artist after seeing him on an episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians Riding in Cars Getting Coffee but I didn’t get to see the full body of his work. It’s lovely. And to me, knitting is art. We use our hands to create objects with color that can transform how you look or how you feel. It’s amazing. I wanted to be an artist when I was a little girl and never felt like I was until I started knitting. Crazy, right? But this just seems to be the medium that connects with me the most. Definitely check out this video, it’s only 6 minutes long and will pleasantly surprise you. Have a great weekend!
