In color psychology, yellow is supposed to be uplifting, illuminating – full of hope, happiness and cheer.
It is said to inspire original thought.
It is a color of the left or logical side of the brain; a practical thinker/creator, not a dreamer.
It does this by creating enthusiasm; awakening confidence and optimism.
“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun.” ~ Pablo Picasso
Within the meaning of colors, yellow is the great communicator; it practically demands that you look at it. It is the most visible of colors in the spectrum.
It depends on itself, preferring to not get emotionally involved. It is a color of the head, not the heart.
Yellow can make people anxious and babies cry. A little goes a long way.
I was never much of a fan of yellow. My garden beds were always a study in pinks, blues, purples, greens and the occasional orange. But this garden has changed my mind. Yellow brings spots of energy and light to the garden; it adds warmth and depth at the same time.
“There is no blue without yellow and without orange.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
Maybe it is the range of yellows here…from the slightest hint of color…
to the deepest gold.
Or maybe it the fact that it is worn so beautifully by the wonderful creatures here.
Uplifting. Illuminating. Full of hope.
