"My days of the week" Oil Painting
When I was in 10th grade at Ashland High School, my art teacher Mrs. Boyer asked the class to 'paint your personality'. I began this painting and Mrs. Boyer viewed it one day and asked what this symbolized? I explained to her that I know she would think I was crazy, but I see colors as my days of each week. I associate Sunday with red, Monday with yellow, Tuesday with magenta, Wednesday with orange, Thursday with Purple, Friday with baby blue, and Saturday with Black/Grey. Mrs. Boyer then told me that I wasn't crazy... that I actually had a 6th sense, so to speak. I asked her what she was talking about, she said Synesthesia, it's the combining of two senses subconsciously. I combine words or the calendar with colors. I swear, I'm not crazy! I've been this way ever since I could remember...and my days never change. One odd thing, however, is that I don't associate ANY day as green. Weird?
