I have been thinking about color, the power of a vibrant hue, the subtle nuance of an opposite shade, the visceral reaction to a saturated tone.
I have been thinking about, painting, reading and painting and thinking some more about Beauford Delaney and the color YELLOW.
This is my painting in progress. I should be done soon:
"His paintings became freer, looser, more expressive of joy, and more colorfully complex. Yet he continued to faithfully make extensive use of yellow, a color that he associated with inner universal spirituality. The best example of this, and one of the best paintings in the show, makes central use of white and yellow as a symbol for intellect, creativity, happiness, and the power of persuasion." Joseph Nechvatal, BEAUFORD DELANEY: Resonance of Form and Vibration of Color, The Brooklyn Rail
