I don’t know if I can fully express how much I enjoyed reading Kaffe Fassett’s autobiography, Dreaming in Color. It was so interesting to read about this master of color’s life (and the surprising fact that he went through a phase of painting white still lives!) and how he embraced so many different handcrafts with such great passion and skill.
His life has been creative from the start — raised in Big Sur, Calif., his parents founded Nepenthe restaurant, he attended a school founded by followers of Jiddu Krishnamurti and was surrounded by artists, musicians and other creative folks — and he has had encounters with all sorts of people, famous and less so, that have shaped his life.
The book is full of pictures of his creations, his travels and things that inspire him, so it’s safe to say it’s a colorful book as well as a colorful story. You will enjoy reading about this creative life and will probably be inspired to make your own life a little more colorful.
This week I’m giving away my copy of this book to share the colorful love! To enter, just comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday. Tell me: what’s your favorite color? Mine is green.
