I had poured myself a bowl of squash soup and happened to set it on a purplish paper napkin. The gold color of the soup suddenly caught my eye. It glowed yellow-orange in the blue bowl, an effect that lessened when I moved the bowl off the lavender napkin. I moved it on and off the napkin several times and was astounded at how much the purple intensified the yellow of the soup. Ah, complementary colors at work! I ate the soup, poured more and headed out to the studio.
