The Color of Earth

Painted Desert Abstract - Blue Point District

Like so many stereotypes of the colors of things, we think of earth as colored in various hues of brown…but then we come to Blue Point, a cliff in the south of the Hopi Nation and our perspective on the color of earth changes. The paradox is that we look on this as an abstraction of reality, but our reality has actually been abstracted by our preconceptions…earth is not bound by the limits of Crayola’s big 64 color box.
