52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Bronze

This is week 45 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. When I saw the color for this week, it reminded me of the time I spent in France and the mimes who would paint themselves this beautiful color and go out and pose in the streets or the cathedral plazas. They would stand so still it would be uncanny and you would wonder if they were really human. Inevitably some small child would approach and get very close only to be frightened out of their minds when the “statue” moved. I remember vividly one such artist who would always set up in the Place Jean D’Arc in Rouen—that’s who I had in my mind as I put this week’s challenge together.

And here is a picture of a real life gold mime artist in case you haven’t ever seen one—pretty cool, isn’t it?

    Totally! My first thought when your pictures came up was that it looked like you belonged on a pedestal in the town plaza. Very original!

    My first thought was, you looked like the gold-painted Bond girl! Either way, you look fantastic 🙂
