  1. I am energized, just looking at these! They're all wonderful works but the one that moves me the most is Katharina Chapuis's "Untitled #SQ-Y5" because I like its glow. Svetlana Rabey's painting resonates with me, too. I'm drawn to drip paintings; it's also interesting to see the muddy yellow-greens work so well with saturated yellow.

    I enjoy what you're doing with this color-themed idea, Elizabeth!

    I painted a series of yellows a few years ago (as part of The Paradise Project, done while still living in the islands). I wanted to work with yellow, being told repeatedly that it's a "difficult" color. I was curious to see what could be done with this hue. I didn't find yellow to be difficult; of course I was working in monochromes, so I didn't have the typical concerns about color harmony.

  2. Oh My Goodness! I was looking at each and everyone of these and saying to myself. "WOW!!! YUM!!! Have I seen that one of Howard Hersh's?" blah, blah, blah....and then there was one I know very well. (xo for featuring one of my pieces!)

    Thanks for these posts on color Elizabeth. They are soooo inspiring!

  3. Visual Vitamin C! Exactly what I need right now. I was in NYC yesterday and Crate and Barrel had a display of Marimekko prints with lots of yellow teapots and things and I just stood there staring, drinking in all the yellow. So happy to have another boost this morning, thanks for posting these.

  4. Hello Elizabeth,

    I just wanted to thank you for dropping by on Facebook. I really enjoyed looking at the examples of your work (and i love this post, the Elise Freda, wow) and I hope to get to see some for real one day.

    All the best,
    Terry Greene
