Yellow and orange are all bound up in Wendy's memory of childhood summers spent at the beach, sand on her feet, salt on her skin, and feeling free to run around with her friends while the parents sat by the pool in what seemed like another world. More than anything she wanted to paint a yellow and orange stripe around her bedroom to remind her of sunlight and summer. Being told no to her color stripe might have been the very beginning of her outright teenage rebellion characterized by punk rock, skate boarding, and high school dropout. Not one to do things part-way, she over corrected in her twenties by graduating from U.C. Berkeley as well as Stanford Law, only to land in Hawaii, mom to four children, spending her days with her feet in the sand, camera in hand, watching color and light and kids running free.
