Hello Yellow!

Paschkis drawingSun can be in short supply in the great northwest. Maybe that is why I love the color yellow. I wear yellow clothes and paint yellow paintings.

I’ve just designed a new scarf called Sun Swoon for Dragon Threads. This is my second scarf for them (thank you everyone who got Summer Birds). The new scarf is YELLOW!
I painted it in two sections:yellow scarf panorama copy
And then flipped each part around to make a center and a border.

The scarf is 70% cotton and 30% silk. It is sheer and floaty, with machine hemmed edges. It is 35″ square. The color is saturated on the front and back.
It feels good to sit in the sun and to feel warmth on your skin. But some days aren’t sunny! On those days you can wear this scarf and take a little bit of summer with you wherever you go. It’s a yellow hello. Here is the scarf around my neck:
