In my home I love the peacefulness of cream, I see it as a blank canvass upon which I can add splashes of colour – my favourite of which is turquoise. I agree with the extravert – I identify with that trait.

Thank you for this information. Right now I have both blue and blue green used. Interesting because those colors evoke trust, truth, transparency. I know a good color with blue is yellow from a visual standpoint of contrast. Yellow brings the idea of warmth, confidence and joy. I’d love your thoughts

There is so much wisdom and expression in colors; they are just abundant with feelings. Go for the purity of white or passion of red, choose what reflects your taste better. Thanks for sharing such detailed information on colors. This will be a great help 🙂

Don’t remember anything about it, except that I knew that it was finished. It was to the ultimate extreme minimalist for me, with colors I rarely use. I have no name for it, don’t know its meaning, and don’t understand it. All I know is it evokes a strong emotional response from me that I am unable to even identify. I will use the color meaning/symbolism chart to see if it helps. (I have not posted this picture on my website.) I don’t even have it hanging anywhere.

Are the colors symbols of a longing for, or a feeling of?

How do we make sense of girls so, drawn to pink. And boys not, but blue?

Thanks,
Tamara

Angeles Arrien, a wonderful teacher of creativity and consciousness also gives indigenous meanings of colors which I have used for 20 years with my clients.

It may symbolize the heavens, other-worldliness, a greater/higher purpose. The same might be said for “ocean” (though there is water on the list). Both the sky and the ocean have the commonality of being a big expanse of the unknown…to be explored, feared, or wondered about (at least as it comes up in art therapy)
