Hi, and welcome to my little corner of COLOURlovers. Feel free to call me Piahr, Pia, or just plain P. I'm so happy to be here – this place is Inspiration Central! I can generally be found hanging around, spending some quality window shopping time browsing (and loving) your amazing palettes and patterns, playing some of those fun Forum games, or enjoying some relaxing art play time making a few colorful goodies of my own.
Please know that I cherish every single love, fave, comment, and follow that you give me. (My CL emails are always read before any others.) I’ve met loads of kindred spirits here; this wonderful community is the absolute best ever. Color the Galaxy! ♥♥♥ Pia
September, 2015 〜 Yay! Autumn is here – my favorite season. There's so much color inspiration everywhere you look, it's almost too much to take in. The next time someone asks me what my favorite color is, I'm going to say, "Autumn." School is back in session now, and the whole neighborhood's a bit quieter. Remember grade-school art projects using colored leaves? Oh, yeah, color the universe!

Profile Photo: Meet da Vinci; he works at the library here. Don't be shy – shake his paw. Like most terriers, he's quite intelligent, and more than a little bit stubborn. He's very good at sniffing out the best art books and he'll fetch coffee too, if he likes you. Don't let his reading glasses and teddy bear demeanor fool you into thinking he's a pushover, though. He can be ferocious if he catches anyone disrespecting his books. (In case you were wondering, yes, da Vinci is part of my rich and satisfying fantasy life.)
