“Orange is the happiest color.”
~ Frank Sinatra
Color is an integral part to all types of creativity, it influences our moods and emotions, it’s linked with memories. Colors have been assigned meanings and connections throughout history and around the world.
When we tune our eyes in to notice the colors around us, life becomes brighter and more vibrant.
Through 2017 I’ve been exploring these aspects of color in a year long visual adventure: one color each month.
Each month I continued adding more single color pages to this mixed media art journal.
Over the last 12 days of the year I want to show you a glimpse of this project.
Starting out in Yellow, then Yellow-Green, Green, Blue-Green, Blue and Blue-Violet, next Violet, then Red-Violet, Red then Red-Orange. Tomorrow we’ll take the final step bringing us full circle to Twelvty-Twelve: Yellow-Orange.

Your email is utterly safe to me. I’ll bring it tea if it wakes up, then sing it back to sleep.
TWELVTY is adventure you can join too.
By exploring the color wheel and each of the 12 colors, I share my creative process plus a feast of resources about color I’ve collected for you.
You’ll learn about the history of how color has been used, not just by artists, but as part of different cultures around the world. You’ll discover the meanings linked to the colors, how there are connections through the ages and around the world.
There are even playlists of songs and music relating to each of the colors! (I said it was thorough, right?)
In 2018 I’m introducing a new element to TWELVTY – a shared creative project that we’ll work on together as we traverse the color wheel.
Registration for TWELVTY 2018 is open now!
