Day 112 – It’s Called Yellow

I’ve been dreaming of a yellow apple.  Yes, I dream of apples 🙂

The Coldplay song “Yellow” is one of my favorites.  Chris Martin, the lead vocalist for the band has explained of the song: “‘Yellow’ refers to the mood of the band. Brightness and hope and devotion.”  How and when did yellow become associated with cowardice?  It’s just wrong that such a cheerful and delightful hue have anything negative about it. Today’s piece is “It’s Called Yellow.”

Here’s to calling yellow as it should be – bright and hopeful!  Have a yellow day!

Until tomorrow.


Day 112 is a mixed media piece with Golden liquid and regular acrylics, brown india ink, tracing paper, and graphite.

  1. Love your yellow apple. As you well know, the Golden Delicious is one of my favorites; a touch of pear in taste and appearance. One of our favorite tunes from a while back was “I’m just mad about Saffron” which dances into my mind every time I use the spice; love the way those little crocus parts (the stamen right?) go from orange to a flush of yellow in rice or soups. Glad a pinch works so well as saffron is about as dear a spice as one can find. I’m with you…..let yellow brighten your day from a glowing sunrise to a vibrant sunset.
