#16 This one's from the sister journals. An exploration in colour.
I didn't used to like yellow much. It rated just beneath pink and orange on the scale of colours I did not like. But for a long time now it has snuck into nearly every single artwork I do, and I finally realized (because I am a little slow on the uptake) that if I am reaching for yellow in various incarnations, so very often, I don't dislike it...I love it. I love yellow!
I have never been a definitive "my favourite colour is..." kind of person (other than between the ages of about 7-10 when it was very resolutely "powder blue", and I had long day dreams about discovering I was from some obscure, but very rich, branch of the royal family, and subsequently getting to ride to school bareback on a white stallion, whilst dressed resplendently in powder blue satin and diamond slippers every day. Hey, a girl's gotta dream!). My favourite colour changes with my mood, and there are many colours that I am strongly drawn to. Yellow though, is a new flavour for me. I've never really felt much of a pull from it before, so this is pretty cool.
Who knows, maybe one day I'll even learn to like pink... (ack, pink, no, not pink!) ...not quite there yet though.
