At 3:03 am Tom handed me my birthday present and card.  The note on the card reads “Because you lose so much, I don’t want you to get lost.  Happy 61st”.  Inside the bag I found a compass and a flashlight.  Perfect!  Now, I may not know where I am, but I know what direction I’m facing when I paint the morning, afternoon or evening sky!

Compass and Flashlight

Playing the Color Scheme Game, I used an Analogous with Split Complement Color Scheme, my dominant color is yellow-orange.
