It's April, and we're sun deprived here in Pacific Northwest. The warmth of yellow is calling out. Yellow is a difficult color to wear. Despite that I still predicted that yellow and grey would be the colors at this year's Academy Awards. I was wrong. That's surprising, a shock really... at least to me. Grey yes, yellow no, but RED.
So I gave it some thought, and here's where I landed. With the writer's strike in full swing earlier this year, the Golden Globes, normally held in January, were canceled. All those RED gowns chosen for January's ceremony, were held until March, and pulled out for the Academy Awards. Thus no yellow.
So was I wrong? We'll never know. In any case. There's a reason why yellow was chosen for the Smiley face popularized in the 70's, it's happy. It begs the question, can it ever look sad? Best in small doses, here's this month's spectral study - yellow.
