YELLOW

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.
