Yellow is a color typically saved for accents except for the spring when it bursts forth from the drab winter landscape. Then and only then is it a welcomed color, in fact, we've waited for it, anticipated it. Yet the rest of the year, yellow is avoided. Calling a shade of yellow "school bus yellow" causes us all to wince, yet in spring, we see it all around and are glad for it.
That's why when I needed a new profile picture, I asked my photographer son to take a few pictures. He suggested outside because of the light and I suggested the profusion of forsythia in the back yard.
I love the yellow of the forsythia in the bright sunshine. It's anticipates the bright sun of the summer with all the smiles and laughter.
Yellow finds its way into my art beads too. I couldn't help but add it to the Surreal Rhythms series and entitle it "Flame."
Last spring, Jeannie Dukic designed a lovely primary colored necklace around one of my primary colored spiral focals.
I love the frosted yellow glass links which I anticipate would go perfectly with some Vintaj brass.
Yellow is the color of Anticipation, of Spring and smiles - we brighten up in the spring when we see a daffodil, if we incorporate a yellow art bead or two into our designs, then we symbolize a smile and spring.
