Three of my five kids were living in L.A., enjoying moderate success as actors: Darrow, Eden and Rainbow. I flew in from NYC in February and was amazed to see that they had color there! Green green lawns, big yellow sunflowers, bright blue sky and on and on. My eyes had gotten used to the Grumbacher Grey palette. It seemed cheerful, but unnecessary. However, returning to New York, I was a mite annoyed at how flat it all looked, until I got used to it again.
