Yellow ...especially for those of you who hate .... it hahaha

Color Yellow

The shade of yellow determines the meaning. Pure, bright and sunny yellow is the easiest color to see. People who are blind to other colors can usually see yellow. Yellow is full of creative and intellectual energy. Always use yellow note pads.

Yellow symbolizes wisdom. Yellow means joy and happiness. People of high intellect favor yellow. Yellow daffodils are a symbol of unrequited love. Sunday's color is yellow-gold.
Yellow Energy

Like the energy of a bright sunny day, yellow brings clarity and awareness. The shade of yellow determines its effect: Yellow-green can mean deceit, and creates a disoriented feeling. Orange-yellow imparts a sense of establishment. Clean light yellow clears the mind, making it active and alert.

Put some yellow in your life when you want:

* clarity for decision-making
* relief from 'burnout', panic, nervousness, exhaustion
* sharper memory and concentration skills
* protection from lethargy and depression during dull weather

Yellow gem stone properties

Carry or wear yellow gemstones to promote the ability to express yourself. They are excellent stones for writers and public speakers to increase eloquence. The yellow stones stimulate movement and mental awareness. They are used to enhance decision making skills.


By request, we shall go to our laundry today, and draw something from there. Thank Ree. :-))

Toilet related thing

So, I had to send hubby to the store since we were out of toilet paper. I figured that you all drew most of the stuff I had and I wasn't about to draw the nasty plunger we have, so I'd draw what was LEFT of the toilet paper. :) Well, here it is...all that's left. lol It's really fuzzy, and yes, the top was misshapen like that. My photo wasn't that great, but it's a photo. :) lol

Ree's Challenge

Ree, Here it is although I am not a happy lassie with this one. I was trying for yellow, red and blue all just one small shift clockwise on the colour wheel. I set it up in a light box as instructed outside on a table, then sat on a very low stool in order not to block the sunlight, and then had to paint very quickly before the light shifted too much. Hence, no times for cups of tea between drying of layers and it all became rather"wet and wild".

That Makes Me Second......

....right? lol Ok, so I spent waaaay too long on this. And the banana changed a couple of times (it tasted really good though). I actually got it all to fit into my small light box, but because the banana was too much to resist, I had to finish the picture (mainly the folds) from a ref pic. This was a ton of fun! :D

Am I first?

Can it be true that I am the first to post the challenge painting? ....I guess that's because I have been bad at doing the daily drawing ..... so shout at me if you want to .....
I'm not even sure if I have done the right thing but I had fun doing this little guy ...
6" X 6" on canvas

Sorry's not in my toilet but I was doing something arty ....

I wanted to let you see that I am still doing some art and I will get back to the daily drawing ....I just need to stay off the net .... LOL
This is a painting I am working on. It is The Red Arch which is about 20 miles from where I live.
It is a WIP so any help you can give me would be appreciated .....
