The Creative Color Challenge ~ Week One ~ Sunflower Yellow

THE CHALLENGE: to explore a different color to create with each week in August. 

Join me in Louise Gale's fun filled challenge!   I am doing this to push myself outside of my comfort zone. For some reason I have a FEAR of color. My art, my home & my wardrobe all reflect my love for all things NEUTRAL ~ white, cream, sepia & black. This month, I am embracing COLOR. I will be experimenting with different shades & hues of COLOR to see what emotions they invoke in me.

Week One ~ Sunflower Yellow

 Yellow...I am feeling HAPPY, HOPEFUL, JOYOUS! Yellow is such a cheerful color.

I am reminded of the warm sun on my skin, the fragrance of yellow flowers, the hopefulness of yellow ribbons tied around tree trunks.

So..."flowers" got me thinking...here is my artistic offering for week one:

  1. Love your challenge entry in yellow! I just finished a submission for Somerset Studio's Poppy theme, and it was tough for me, it is heavy red, and I'm a neutral, white (hence the name whyte on etsy)ecru, sepia and monochromatic gal too.
