a photo a week – yellow

“How lovely yellow is! It stands for the sun.”
Vincent Van Gogh

Yellow a fantastic color, one of my favorite flowers is the daffodil. I had a couple roads I could take here: food, flowers, clothing …. but I will go for modern art.

Studies show that the meaning of the color yellow can be warmth, cheerfulness, increased mental activity, increased muscle energy. The color yellow helps activate the memory, encourage communication, enhance vision, build confidence, and stimulate the nervous system.

The color yellow is associated with warmth, happiness, fun, friendship, caution and electricity.
