day 1: 12 days of Twelvty

Over the last 12 days of the year I want to show you a glimpse of this project, beginning with….

Twelvty-One: Yellow

Color is an integral part to all types of creativity, it influences our moods and emotions, it’s linked with memories. Colors have been assigned meanings and connections throughout history and around the world.  colorwheelspiral

When we tune our eyes in to notice the colors around us, life becomes brighter and more vibrant.

Through 2017 I’ve been exploring these aspects of color in a year long visual adventure: one color each month.

One part of the adventure has been the creation of a mixed media art journal. Each month I’ve added a few more pages, using just in that month’s colors.

Over the last 12 days of the year I want to show you a glimpse of this project, beginning with….

Twelvty-One: Yellow

The color of sunshine, buttercups & bananas!


“A picture painted in yellow always radiates spiritual warmth”
– Wassily Kandinsky

Tomorrow we’ll step around to Twelvty-Two: Yellow-Green

  1. Mixy: I’m sure the yellows were my faves the first time around. BEAUTIFUL work. I so agree with slowing down and really ‘seeing’ colors. In yoga, we call it ‘being in the moment.’ Being present. Thanks for the reminder and the review.

    1. I think the faster the pace of life ‘outside’ gets, the more important it is to slow down ‘inside’. I’ve learned a lot more about me & about life than I expected to in doing this color project. (I love a bit of sideways learning!)
