Arbolada Rainbow - Yellow

"Tie a yellow ribbon round that old oak tree".....  another reminder of the seventies (thanks Tony)!

True lemon yellow is small doses ...... except in nature.  Maybe I'm senstive to yellow because I cannot wear it.  Blonde hair and yellow tinted skin... it just doesn't work for me.  But, as an artist, I appreciate yellow.  

Yellow is the color of the third chakra, known as the solar plexus chakra, which is associated with one's personal power or "self-love".  I find this interesting when one learns the conflicting symbolism of yellow......  happiness, fun, summer, sunshine, hope, intelligence, slow, caution, deceit, cowardice, mourning.   

But, let's get back to beauty & fun..... An acacia tree in bloom (see above), a field of sunflowers or mustard flower, canaries, lemonade, daffodils, pears, corn on the cob, bananas, yellow rain slicker and galoshes, highlighters, Smiley Face, Pac Man, Sponge Bob and Pikachu!   : )
