Dear Friends and Associates,
Have you ever wondered about the significance of color?
Why do you love one and dislike another?
Why some make you happy and others make you uneasy?
And for painters and artists, do you consider this when creating your palette…
First I wanted to do a little research. I asked my Face Book friends what their favorite colors were from the color wheel below and received more than 500 votes. Which one’s do you think were the winners?
What are your favorites? Below you can see the responses of the Face Book voters.
There were also a few additional colors that people mentioned that were not in the wheel like dark green, indigo, black, brown and pink.
Color influences our emotions, our actions and how we respond to people, things and ideas.
Much has been studied and written about color and its impact on our state of mind and our daily lives.
Below are some of the personal characteristics attributed to certain colors.
Will, Energy, Action, Confidence, Courage, Vitality, Beginnings, Leadership, Masculinity, Appetite and Zest for Living.
Enthusiasm, Happiness, Creativity, Sincerity, Luck, Passion, Survival, Sexuality, Nurturing and Caregiving.
Manifestation, Prosperity, Wisdom, Play, Joy, Happiness, Intellectual Energy, Sense of Self and The Will to Get Things Done.

Note…Purples and Violets were the most popular colors this year. The last time I did color research (2010) Blue was the most popular.
If this year you would like to increase an energy in your world try adding one of the colors that describes what you want more of. Better yet, create some art from the color traits you desire!
And most all…have some fun.
Color is the best antidepressant of all! (Especially Orange;)
Wishing you Happiness and “ALL” the Colors of Life!
