Mixing Colors from the Palette

bbSo, this week we heard that Kanye and Kim K. are having their own bundle of joy. That, in turn, made me think about mixed race folks and the beauty in mixing colors. Less conventional artists have always considered the impact of mixing colors. The wonderful thing about “mixing colors” is that you never really know what you are going to get, and so it goes with us. We are beautiful in shocking and wonderful ways….frizzy hair, blue eyes, or green eyes with a caramel color. The following YouTube videos give a glimpse into the beauty of mixing colors. Some folks you will know, some you won’t….but the beauty is unmistakable. Happy New Year to all my mixed race people….and congratulations to Kanye & Kim. elle T.
