Searching for Roy G Biv #4: Blogger's Choice...One Last Trip Around the Rainbow Update #4

Welcome to the final (for now) installment of Searching for Roy G Biv... the colors of the rainbow. This month's color (or colors) is YOUR choice!

I decided to look back at some past photos and include a few new ones to present one last trip around the rainbow...

To participate in this last installment of Roy, post your photos and then leave a comment here or on Jennifer Coyne Qudeen's blog. We'll link to your post. I'll be updating this post through Saturday, December you have some time to get your photos together...

I want to thank those of you who have participated in the Search for Roy over the last few years. It's been so great to get to know you and your work and also to see the world of color through your eyes. Many of your photos have been simply astounding! I especially want to thank my cohort, Jennifer Coyne Qudeen....the Search for Roy started as a little game between the two of us and it was Jennifer who suggested that we open it up to all of you.

I echo Jennifer's thoughts about how the Search has opened my eyes to my surroundings. Each month, became a sort of a color treasure hunt. I believe that I'm now a more active observer...and I hope, a better photographer!

I hope that you've been inspired to really LOOK at all the beauty that surrounds us each and every day!

Jennifer's photography has always impressed me and continues to do so...those "pops" of color that turn up in the most unusual (and sometimes mundane) places...she has a selection of her favorites and they are simply gorgeous!

Fiona at Paper Ponderings ends her years of contributing to Roy with the quiet stillness of WHITE. Thank you Fiona...I've enjoyed your Thursday Thoughts for many years!

Lisa at arzigogolare is featuring GOLD-GREEN inspired by the magnolia leaves from a recent bouquet. I love the close-ups of the leaves and your ideas for creating books with them! Thanks Lisa for your contributions to many, many months of Roy. Your photos always amaze me!

Elizabeth and Susan at PG Fiber2Art have RAINBOWS of color...most of them enticingly hanging on clotheslines! Thanks for participating in the Search for Roy this year. It was great to get to know you better and I know that our paths will continue to cross!

Maya Matthew at Take Diversion chose one beautiful and meaningful MULTI-COLORED image to end this year's Search for Roy. Thank you Maya for continuing to participate. Through your images I've gotten a sense of the colors and flavors of India.

Mary Ann at Blue Sky Dreaming features a "blast from the past"...a beautiful monotype of colorful fish. Thanks Mary Ann..I've look forward to seeing your art pieces each month!

Margaret at Charlton Stitcher has a photo of a fascinating work of art from her travels to Australia. Thank you so much Margaret, for your years of participation. The photos of your travels are inspiring and make me want to "hit the road" to see new and exciting places!


  1. Oh, I love how you chose that purple dress as one of your final images, was that very frock that first inspired me to join you ladies in the ROY G BIV challenge! Thanks so much for giving us the chance to all to "meet" each other - and see so many fascinating parts of the world in the process!

  2. We've so enjoyed playing along on this colorful adventure! For our final post we decided to look for photos with colors that spanned the rainbow. It's been fun both finding the photos and exploring everyone's choices. Thanks for leading us on this journey!

  3. Thank you Julie and Jennifer for hosting Roy and opening it up so, all of us could participate and share our colour findings. It's been a marvellous two years for me.
    My final installment for Roy 2015 has been posted here

    Thanks again and wishing you a fulfilling 2016.

  4. Great color choices here on the last Roy G Biv day. I seem to have let the day slip by me but I will visit the other searchers. Thank you for such a great way to share and meet other artists...its been my pleasure.

  5. Hi Julie I love your selection! Thank you for the whole idea. It has been most enjoyable. I've posted a small last taster on my blog and will miss catching up with everyone's choices each month. All good wishes to you both.
