When we are born, the lens of our eyes actually begin to yellow. As we grow older, they continually become more yellow. By the time we are in our 70's, the lens becomes about the color of ginger.
If a young person puts a yellow filter over their eyes, they will see that the ability to distinguish between certain colors is very evident. Pastel colors, blues, greens, and light purples are hard to tell apart as compared to reds, yellows and oranges. Blues and greens are very difficult to decipher and darker colors become almost black.
Furthermore, if a person is looking through a yellow lens all of the time, then that yellow will start to cause problems on their nervous system.

I started with a small canvas. The canvas is one that has the staples running up the sides of the frame because in case I made a mess, I wouldn’t feel bad about the canvas! Anyway, I began by picking a few colors and dripping a few drops randomly onto the canvas. I took a paintbrush and swirled it around until all of the colors blended. I wasn’t trying to create anything in particular, I was just seeing what would happen through the process. After I spread the paint across the canvas, I added alcohol drops/splatters onto the wet paint for some texture. As this was drying, I began to see shapes forming. After the paint dried, I came b...
The paint is still drying on this piece of art that I created this week. As I began painting carefree flowers using the dripping technique, little jewels turned into little bubbles that reminded me of the sea. For me, I see a garden of flowers rising out of the sea...so I will name this one "Sea Blossoms". My inspiration this week was playful abstracts.
