As you may already know, I'm drawn to bright, bold, saturated colors. I'm often inspired by nature and pattern. This year, one hot trend is neon...and I'm just not sure how I feel about that! On one hand I love it - the eye catching yellows, pinks, blues and greens are being used unexpectedly.

I love that these loud colors can be inserted into quiet places, like a salad bowl or piece of driftwood, and transform the feel of these natural pieces instantly.

And touches of neon on jewelry adds a fun pop to otherwise neutral outfits.

On the other hand, I cannot help but remember my own pair of neon multi-colored stirrup pants that I rocked in the 80s. I'm not sure if neon has a place in my already-bright paintings, but that won't necessarily stop me from trying out a bit of neon in my home.
