I believe everyone has skeletons in their closet.  Today I am posting a special piece. When I was a little girl, something really awful happened to me on a bright yellow bedspread. For years, I avoided the color. I painted with blues, greens, reds, purples, earth tones, but left out yellow unless someone requested it. It is such a happy beautiful color and it wasn’t right to leave it out of my work. About 7 years ago I had therapy for PTSD using EMDR which helped me disassociate the negativity I had attached to this wonderful hue. I have triumphed over it and now EMBRACE it! It makes me happy to see yellow in my work now…….
