I just wanna… lick him!!

I have to say, of all the colors we’ve been given thus far, none have been more controversal than this week’s Color Challenge: Liver. Liver. I know! I keep reading people saying “ew liver! yuck!” which is all fine and dandy, except I’m a cook real life and I LOVE LIVER! Yes I said it! I like organ meats in general, but liver is fantastic when cooked correctly, plus it’s the main ingredient in one of my favorite dishes, Pate. I thought about doing a pate and posting the recipe along with this week’s picture, but time got away from me and I wasn’t able to do it.

So on to the controversy I mentioned, after looking through a ton of the pics done for the challenge, the colors ranged so much! Luna’s color swatch showed an ashy gray almost. A lot of posts were ashy blacks to dark grays.. symbolizing cooked liver perhaps? Luna’s picture was more of a rusty green/brown, perhaps liver in the raw? When I searched the color liver, I got an explanation about how it’s used to describe a more brown chestnut color in horses and dogs. So my dilemma.. which is really liver, as in which will I use? Using some poetic licence, I went with the uncooked ashy reddish brown color, which is how I see liver. The color reminded me a bit of the new Treaders gift from Maitreya, so I went with it, not because I couldn’t figure out how to really interpret the color (well..sorta), but because it made a pretty cute friggin’ outfit! Plus the skirt (sooo cute!!) has a hint of that fleshy color also so in my mind.. this works. Am I reaching?? Lol, probably, but I got it done and next up is Firebrick!
