What 3 Colors Bring You Joy? is my painting series based in dialogue. It’s important for people to feel heard and valued. A lot of my friends and family have had some really difficult times and I wanted to do something to help.

The series was inspired on an evening walk with my Studio Dog, Mory. The sky’s colors were beautiful and I felt a joy that I wanted to share. I came home and asked my social media community: ‘What 3 Colors Bring You Joy?’”

I didn’t expect many people would comment. But just a few hours later, I had dozens of responses. I took the answers that poured in and painted small paintings, posted them on social media, tagged and thanked the people who had shared their colors. This series requires people’s input, for me to know what brings them joy and that’s what I love about it!

I wanted to take the series larger. In a yoga class one day, it all came together…paint What 3 (Chakra) Colors Bring You Joy? I’ve studied yoga in an undisciplined, spotty sort of way for over 20 years. I became interested in the links between the chakra colors and the colors that bring people joy. In the first year of the Joy series, the most frequently requested color combination was blue, green, and orange. When you overlay the meaning behind the chakra colors with these combinations, interesting things start to happen—connections, openings, new ways of thinking about ourselves and what brings us Joy.

This painting is the green chakra, which is said to be the Heart Chakra. Our desires and feelings about relationships, love and compassion correspond to this chakra.
