What is your one line, one colour idea?

It appealed to me when I saw it...

Miró’s 'Painting on A White Background' (1968)...the idea that “at the very limit, then, one line, one colour can make a painting”1.

Which may offer inspiration for creating new business opportunities, in that...

  • perhaps that single, random, apparently insignificant idea muttered in a meeting, could actually be the one that charms the market (we just need to be mindful enough to hear it and courageous enough to make it happen). 

  • there is something to be said for going back to basics and embracing simplicity.

  • it is possible to see beauty, meaning and potential in everything.  Ok you won't appeal to everyone - and you don't need to try. Monet lovers may not appreciate Miró. But if we can keep our mind open like a canvas, and encourage others to do the same, it's a good place to start.
