Taking a Chance

First of all, thank you my dear friends and visitors for taking time and leaving a comment. It means a lot to me! I appreciate it a lot :) Also, to all my new followers a big welcome and a thank you. Hope you will like and love visiting Hues n Shades :)

This week's prompt is:

Headline Prompt: Taking a Chance: When did you take a chance or a leap of faith? How did it turn out? What did you learn?
Color Prompt: What color do you like least? Use it!
Quote Prompt: "Don't refuse to go on an occasional wild goose chase -- that's what wild geese are for." Anonymous
I had to do this last minute as I have lot of things going on right now. But surely I didn't want to miss this as well. So here's my interpretation.

Its always a dilemma to take a risk. When I had to leave a full time job because of few health issues I was totally frustrated. I had my downs and as they say when there’s none to help…we have to help ourselves… I had to do exactly that. I took to my hobby, my passion and turned it to a full time job. I am happy about it. I dream and aspire to secure a fulfilling space in the art world. My focus remains that but there are those troubled times when you wish for an anchor and just remain calm and still which most of the times, I struggle with.
As for the colours, as my blog name suggests I love each and every hue…I just can’t choose one from the other. But there are a few colours which I tend to use less…like shades of brown, purple, violet and maroon …so they are my choice here.

this is a beautiful piece- to me the image sees hope and the ability to rise above whatever is holding her down-there's a hint of a smile that everything will be OK. Happy PPF and FF&F!
