Code Yellow

Finally, I painted a mainly yellow canvas. It also proved to be a difficult color. Yellow was such a bright color, I had trouble placing other colors on top of it. Whereas I tried to use the same colors among all the paintings, I was forced to alter some colors because of the color shift among adjacent colors.

 The pattern goes back to a "S" pattern used on my family's towels. I mimicked its double spiral. As for whether people saw an "S" in the painting was not important to me.

 The pastels in this painting made it more childlike, playful and happy. The personality of this piece just sort of happened. It wasn't something I planned.

  1. Love this one! Yellow's my favorite color. Happy, cheerful and child-like--yes, I feel all of those things with this painting. :-)

    Thank you. I'm happy to know that all that was conveyed in this piece.

    People often tell me my work is playful.
