‘described as having an “idiosyncratic palette,” thomson’s control of colour was exceptional.’ however, that control is lost in reproductions, whether in books or online or on posters, for they aren’t necessarily true to the original colours. for example,
the west wind can look yellowy, or kind of blue, or somewhere in between. best by far to see the original, if you can. i can’t promise these reproductions are true.

Merry Christmas, 2015Merry Christmas And Happy New Year, 2015! (Click ==>here<== to see what the original kinda looks like on my screen. I haven’t figured out yet how to do shapes other than squares and rectangles, so it looks retro.)

I’m still happy and healthy and living in Midland with Susan (and Oscar the dog of course). Some of the reasons I like this manner of wishing you a Merry Christmas are that I can do iterations quickly (no paper or ink is used–no trees are logged), I can add hyperlinks, and I can email the results.
