Volcano colors

Last week when I was in Cleveland I went to the wonderful Cleveland Art Museum. Their newest exhibit was actually opening the very day I was there—a collection of American Indian Art from the Thaw collection. It is an extraordinary show, very diverse. In the very last room this Seminole patchwork man's long shirt stopped me in my tracks. First, because I love the look of Seminole piecing and this was such an exquisite example and second, because it immediately reminded me of Kristin's volcano theme palette. Pretty close, eh? It is only lacking a bit of chartreuse, I think.

It has me thinking.

I absolutely agree! Replace a little of the yellow with chartreuse and you'd be there. And, you can't go wrong with seminole piecing.
