Yellow is the Colour of Hope

The Not-Very-Big Reveal.

Remember the Secret Art of Hope?
Shhh.

Breakthrough Art Festival exhibition was a huge success, raising over $25,000 for NSW Cancer Council.
I held

an Arty Party. We created canvases. Our artworks were required to be anonymous.

At last! I can show you my little bird.

My little yellow bird.
Strictly speaking it is not mine. It belongs to whoever might wish to purchase it for a mere $100 AUD.

If you don’t want the little yellow bird, there are hundreds of other artworks, each priced at $100, every dollar of which goes directly to the Cancer Council to help the wonderful work they do.
A kind artist, Georgina Hart, continues to show the work until 24th June in her studio, Middle Cove, Sydney. Interested?
Contact Georgina via Facebook or email.

Here’s the story behind the picture.

Holding only the intention of creating a picture of Hope for the Cancer Council, I sift through a National Geographic magazine. I chance upon an article about cancer. How’s that for synchronicity?

I collage. I paint layers of yellow. In what I call the ‘Art of Emergence’, a bird appears, offering a hopeful message. In the bird’s body, a spiral sings the cycles of life.

Loose threads form themselves into an egg – perhaps freshly laid and protected; delicate yet strong.

It’s not all sunny yellow out there. Or in here. Black and white make themselves known.

And hope shines through.

What’s a synchronicity moment for you?
Is it linked with your openness to creativity?
