I have looked at this image in both color and black & white. It is a dilemma, for both are relevant. But they are unique too, for they stand separate in their two versions. I may keep them both, for I respond to both of them, as tho they were two different people, coming from a different background and perspective. It is more than about color or not. It is what the color one feels like. What the b&w one feels like.
There are theories about that. Maybe the b&w expresses its form better, without the color as a distraction. Maybe it is more moody and spare. Color has its attributes too…and it feels like warmth and sweetness in its tones. Its form is accentuated by the change of color. One feels that also. They are both yet to be titled, but for now Rose Bud.
