Green is definitely the color of spring 2009. According to Pantone® it will invigorate us and our wardrobes with three distinct tones: Vibrant Green, the calmer and sophisticated Dark Citron, and clean, clear Lucite Green (which you met in the February 2009 Margie’s Muse).

Yellow-Green and Fuchsia... does color get any livelier than this?

Yellow-Green and Fuchsia... does color get any livelier than this?

When spring and summer arrive, I can’t resist variations of lime-greens and yellow-greens. I draw and paint with them, bead with them, wear them.

They are quintessential spring, the first greens we see popping out of the ground in stalks.
Sometimes shocking, always playful and lively, these are the warmest of greens because so much yellow comprises them.
They combine beautifully with their analogous color wheel neighbors, blues and yellows.

But the most fun you can have is by combining them with their complements: magentas and fuchsias. Look at these earrings!
