I love the colors in my life. The brilliance of the water reflecting from my pool, the deep colors of vegetables growing in my garden, and the beautiful sunsets all, among many more in combination, help pick me up. Color does have a psychological impact and, because of this, you can utilize this medium as a support. You do not have to call yourself an artist to do this. This is just good old natural appreciation!
Here are more color meanings as communicated by
“…the color red one day,…may indicate ready to take action, or passion…, or it may mean feeling[s of] angry that day, on either a conscious or subconscious level.

The color psychology of pink is unconditional love and nurturing. Pink can also be immature, silly and girlish.
In the meaning of colors, magenta is a color of universal harmony and emotional balance. It is spiritual yet practical, encouraging common sense and a balanced outlook on life.
The color brown is a serious, down-to-earth color that relates to security, protection and material wealth.
From a color psychology perspective, gray is the color of compromise - being neither black nor white, it is the transition between two non-colors.
The color silver has a feminine energy; it is related to the moon and the ebb and flow of the tides - it is fluid, emotional, sensitive and mysterious.
Gold is the color of success, achievement and triumph. Associated with abundance and prosperity, luxury and quality, prestige and sophistication, value and elegance, the color psychology of gold implies affluence, material wealth and extravagance.

White is color at its most complete and pure, the color of perfection. The color meaning of white is purity, innocence, wholeness and completion.
Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world.”
What are your thoughts about color? Does it rock your world or could you care less about its impact? Leave me a note, I’m curious!
