Yo, Yellow!

When you need a lift, I can’t think of a color better than yellow to help you to see things from a brighter side. So I paged him to the front of the store, and happily (because Yellow is always happy), he responded.


He agreed to help me send smiles out to a few friends today. He gave Pinky Purple an early wakeup call (he wanted her up before the sun), and she groggily joined in.Β  So, I give you Yellow and Pinky Purple! Plus the ever popular white dots in gesso as an accompaniment. This was done in my 9 x 12″ Strathmore Visual Watercolor journal.Β  (Supplies included Portfolio water soluble oil pastels, acrylic tube paint, Derwent Inktense blocks, gesso, modeling paste, love, hugs, and warm thoughts.)

Happy Memorial Day Monday. We sure owe a lot to the men and women who fought for our freedom, my dad and brother being part of that proud circle. Love you, Dad. Nearly twenty years, and I miss you still!

Peace, hugs, and smiles to you all.

    1. Thank you very much, but I have to work at it. The blog helps! I feel like my role here is joy-flinger and sunshine-spreader. The bonus is in spreading the positive vibes/energy to others, some of it bounces back to me. πŸ™‚

  2. Such a cute way to tell the colors’ story! πŸ™‚ We are cloudy here today so I appreciate your lovely sunshine.

    Thank you to your dad and all those who served (my father-in-law and all his brothers, too…).
