As Bright as This Day in May

The clearest of all colors in the rainbow, the jovial hue of yellow heralds the month of May.  As sunshine begins to warm the earth this time of year, the color yellow has always represented that brilliant orb of the sun shining above in our earliest childhood drawings.Education

What other color evokes such a feeling of happiness? Could you imagine the smiley face icon as grinning purple? Just would not cause the corners of your mouth to rise in appreciation of the cheery yellow messenger.

Yet, yellow is not always viewed in a positive light.  There is a myth that yellow painted walls in the home cause babies to cry and couples to argue.

Like any perpetual legend, there is some truth to the story. Excessive exposure to this brilliant color contributes to eyestrain. Wouldn’t that make you cranky?

The yellow of May speaks encouragement. This primary color makes up two thirds of every imaginable color. It’s significance in the world, like your own importance, is critical.

The newness of this year is waning but not your commitment to your accomplishments.

Take this buoyant day in May to bask in your own light. Yellow is the lighthearted optimist. Take out your brush and paint a jaunty smile on your self portrait today.

 

“Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun.”  Pablo Picasso
