White sunlight, is actually a spectrum of all colours,
as seen when the speed of light is slowed by a prism,
separating the colours and making a rainbow.
The way we observe nature is no less fantastic.
When light shines down from the sun and hits the earth,
every material thing on earth will absorb certain rays
of light and reflect the rest back out into space.
Those reflected rays of coloured light are how we
perceive the colour of an object. A red cardinal is not
really red, it’s every colour except red.
I like to play with this idea in my art by mixing up
the colours of nature and making something just
as beautiful, using my fingers, and paints
that are not really the colours we think
