It has been a long winter season. I am weary of the cold. The lack of vibrant color. I have been experimenting with Encaustics. Adding bright, beautiful colors to the wax. Layering with pretty colored papers. Longing for color.
Finally, I can look out the window and see that color IS popping out here and there. Yellow! The Forsythia Bush! The Daffodils! Dandelions! It is such a warm and welcome color.
Walking this week, I found yellow in so many places. The more I saw this bright color, the more I smiled. I have not smiled much lately.
I felt inspired to create. As in so many times before, nature provides me with inspiration.
The ideas came. Beads and metals. Color combinations. Maybe this....no, not that. What?
I decided to create a bracelet. It had to shout YELLOW. It had to say "I AM.....I AM Spring, and I AM here.....I AM color, and I AM here".
And I am so glad.
