YELLOW IS HAPPY.
Do some colors catch your eye, fire your emotions and imagination? Are do all of them do so in different ways and various times?
Yellow is the color that catches my eye in a scene. Yellow is sunshine and sunflowers. It denotes hope and happiness.
Yellow is cheerful. A happy face.
It is eye catching, eye popping. It makes me smile.
Yellow is hope. For years yellow ribbons were worn as a sign of hope as women waited from their men to come marching home from war. Today, they are still used to welcome home loved ones. Its use for hazard signs creates an association between yellow and danger, although not quite as dangerous as red.
And yet yellow has a negative connotation as well. If someone is yellow it means they are a coward so yellow can have a negative meaning in some cultures.
‘Yellow is for mourning in Egypt and actors of the Middle Ages wore yellow to signify the dead. Yet yellow has also represented courage (Japan), merchants (India), and peace.’ From :http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/colorselection/p/yellow.htm
Carl Sandburg’s poem
THEME IN YELLOW
I SPOT the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
On the last of October
When dusk is fallen
Children join hands
And circle round me
Singing ghost songs
And love to the harvest moon;
I am a jack-o’-lantern
With terrible teeth
And the children know
I am fooling.
This time of year–autumn–we get to enjoy many shades of yellow in the fall leaves. Gold coins on the birches, fluttering pale butter colored on poplars.
We see custard yellow in the pale stubble of harvested fields.
Fall doesn’t last long so enjoy the colors while you can.
