Why I would want to feature generous amounts of yellow in every painting of this exhibition about serenity? Well, yellow is my favorite color, as I’ve always been attracted by its energy, happy mood, and yellow’s powerful ability to concentrate intellect and spirit. It’s as if, to me, that yellow exists for the purpose of propelling us to greater levels of conscious progress and creativity. Also, yellow exists for the purpose of allowing our spirits to soar high enough to be able to jettison away the everyday petty things that can weigh our spirits down. With such tremendous power, yellow must be used judiciously, allowing all of the positive aspects to shine while limiting the potential overkill of its hyper puppy-like exuberance. Additionally, yellow must not be allowed to drift into the negative realms of dinginess and jaundice! Only healthy, strong yellows, and healthily yellowy neighbors of yellow (greens, oranges, and browns) shall be cast in the yellow characters of the paintings in this show. Placing some restraints on the over-exhaustive use of yellow will ultimately allow serenity to co-exist with the yellow, and result in an amazing sense of peace and harmony.
