Colors on computer are so complex and just plain weird. Tonight I have used this image in 4 different programs. I created the image in Studio Artist, added an adjustment layer in Adobe Photoshop to change the hue, looked at this and several other versions in Adobe Bridge and then finally working on this post in Firefox.

The reddish/orange hue in the Bridge looked very very orange and extremely elegant! Then when I was resizing it in Photoshop, all of a sudden it looks much pinker than orange. Hence the name “coral.”
I remember looking at a post in Lisa Call’s quilting blog and she was writing about being very distressed because the color didn’t come out right on a photograph she was putting on the web. I think I must have had 2 browsers open – Firefox and also Safari – probably to look at the image and post in one browser and comment in the other. The color difference was amazing – like 2 different pieces. So I am not going to be in too much angst right now over this color difference.
In the comments to this post a few days ago Chris made an anoucement about changes he is going to make in his art marketing blog.Â You might want to check out these comments and definitely check out his blog as he makes these changes.Â I will point you to his blog as he does make this change.
Thank you again for all your support and encouragement!
