My Imagination has a Jump Start
It's warm, it's beautiful,
It's over 70 degrees, and the sun is shining.
Today as I walked through the yard
I discovered yellow daffodils
blooming next to the shed.
The first color of spring.
God planed for the first color of spring to be exciting,
warm and inviting.
There were at least a dozen flowers
with buds galore.
When I walked out to the mail box
there was a beautiful yellow envelope
postmarked from Texas
with handwritten words of encouragement.
God knew what I needed today.
My mind is swirling with yellow.
How do I describe yellow?
Bright, sunshine, smiles,
excitement, happy, warm,
moon, pale, lemonade,
dandelions, lemons, grapefruit,and bananas
sunrise, gold. sunflowers,
brass, canary, forsythia,
goldenrod, baby chicks
My imagination has a jump start
not only with color
with many values and temperatures
but also shape and combinations.
It all started as I walked through the yard.
Inspiration for a painter
comes in many forms and in many places.
I'll be checking on new color everyday.
Be ready to discover.
