ROY G. BIV – What’s your favourite color?


“My teacher asked my favorite color. … I said ‘Rainbow’…. and I was punished to stand out of my class.”

Glass Gem corn, a unique variety of rainbow-coloured corn, became an
Internet sensation in 2012 when a photo of the dazzling cob was posted to Facebook.
The story of Glass Gem corn begins with an Oklahoma farmer named Carl Barnes. Barnes, now in his 80s, is half-Cherokee. He began growing older corn varieties in his adult years (no one is exactly sure when this began) as a way to reconnect with his heritage.

What’s your favourite color?

“Roy G. Biv” is an acronym made of the first letters of the seven colors of the rainbow, to help you remember: Red. Orange. Yellow. Green. Blue. Indigo. Violet.

Introducing the amazing Body Art

In response to Daily Prompt : Ready for your Close-Up, I posted a photo of a painted body and received many comments on how beautiful that picture was.  That was a close-up picture of a SuperStar indeed.  Unfortunately I was not the model, neither was I the artist but I am just an admirer of Body Art.  I am a loyal spectator that will go year after year to witness the local New Zealand Body Art Award in support of these local young artists.


This post is to acknowledge all body art artists, models and each and everyone that make New Zealand Body Art Award possible.

In creating this post, I thought of our fellow blogger friend Belinda of BusyMindThinking who is not well enough to go out and about.  I would like to show Belinda this wonderful Body Art Showcase.  Belinda is hoping to see the world in the eyes of others and as quoted in her project,  “If you can’t see the world, bring the world to you”.

Body Art is a relatively new form of art that is becoming very popular in New Zealand and across the world.  Body Art explores the many different ways, both temporary and permanent, in which people modify, change, decorate and adorn their bodies.  Yearly since 2006, young New Zealanders are offered an opportunity to pursue their artistic visions and recognition in the Body Art Award.  This year’s award will be held next month and without doubt, I will be there to show my support for this art and creativity.  The event will showcase body paintings of all sorts, a spectacular show not to be missed.

Photography are not permitted during the show and those photos I shared here are either taken from photo exhibits at the show venue, live models and artists that mingled with the audience before or after show time, or photos courtesy of New Zealand Herald.  Photo credits all artists of New Zealand Body Arts Award.

For your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy our body art in pictures !
