We were reading this great interview of one of our favourite artists, Jim Houser, at Fecal Face (don't let the name scare you...it's a great art site), when we realized that Houser's works make for a great resource for colour inspiration. A couple more examples below the cut....

Houser's eye for colour reminds us very much of Martha Stewart's preferred palette, although he's recently diverged from his earlier spectrum: "I like red and blue and variations of red and blue. That's the direction it seems to be going. Browns and tans. No more pink. No more orange. No more green. Even my black is just super dark blue or brown. My white has blue or brown in it. Sea water, dog fur, and dried blood. That's my inspiration."
