Happy Yellow

On my desk
Proteas
Envelopes
For years and years I thought I didn't like yellow, but I was wrong :-)
It's impossible to not be happy working with those beautiful proteas on my desk.
I'm getting a batch of orders ready to ship and working on the cover of my book!
I'm not allowed to tell you the title just yet but it's about hand carved stamps
& it will be published by Lark Books in the fall. I can wait to share it with you!

I used to feel the same way about yellow (and orange) and now I enjoy them like crazy and think of them as happy colors. Can't wait to see details about your new book!

you're amongst good company with Lark.
O, and yellow,(along with orange) is one of the "happy" colours. Or so they said in school.

Right on- your hand carved stamps are my favorite thing I've seen on your blog. Something about them and the process you use to carve them grabs me! Well I love your video on watercolor too. I really love those videos you made. Congrats!

I've been a bit the same with yellow this year... sometimes you just need a bit of cheer. And green, too, this summer has bought me a more quiet joy. I love your artworks. Thanks, grace

Hi Geninne
Im an art publisher in London looking for new artists to work with for prints + cards/stationery + discovered your beautiful images by chance!
I would love it if you could contact me - as you appear to have no email address on any of your sites!
Look forward to hearing from you hopefully!
Best Wishes

Qué bonitas fotos, y las anteriores, me he enamorado de las magnolias rosas. En casa tenemos un magnolio blanco que en verano perfuma todo el jardín, uno de mis arboles favoritos. Ya tengo tu agenda, aún no he escrito mucho, me da pena gastarla! Pero se me pasará y la llenaré. Un saludo!

Oh Geninne, how good that looks!
I embraced Yellow a while ago and when I introduced it into our home I could not believe how I could live without it all these years. It is such a happy color and cheers you up and makes the sun shine all day. And I love how you paired it with the Blue!
Happy New Year of the Dragon from Seoul!
