“Open Heart,” © Karen Joslin, 2011
Late last March, I was driving from Tallahassee to Apalachicola to attend an art festival when a sign along highway 98 caught my attention. Set near a funky shop, it consisted of a simple wooden A-frame with two things tacked onto it: a painted heart and a canvas reading “OPEN.” Although its purpose was to entice visitors inside the store, I was struck by the sign’s metaphorical meaning.
I’ve run across a couple of funny bits of Valentine’s Day humor in the past few days that I want to share. The first is from Photoshop guru Scott Kelby, via Kelby Training’s e-newsletter (adapted by me to show the actual colors):
Roses are #FF0000,
Violets are #0000FF.
However, I think this would be more accurate, if a tad less poetic:
Roses are #9B1F39,
Violets are #9C52F7.
