Color Is Powerful
Hello Everyone.
  If You are painting or just decorationg a home I thought you might have fun reading this Color Clinic material…
   Whatever we do, Color is everywhere around us, … and has a bigger impact on us than We can ever understand… color can uplift us, depress us, or even make us hungry. {Ever wonder why the big eating places use a lot of red? It stimulates our brain } So have a color-full day and enjoy the list. Think about it, and if you need to get rid of the winter blahs… put on a “happy” color and go stand in the sun.
  Here is a list of some of the common colors and what type of psychological emotion they invoke in people:
BABY BLUE is a color which implies weakness.

Shoppers who plan and stick to budgets respond best to pink, teal, light blue and navy. Traditionalists respond to pastels – pink, rose, sky blue. So how can you put this information to use? It all depends on what kind of psychological message you want to convey with your color selection. But if you are thinking about the emotional reponse you want your viewers to have when you are planning a color scheme in your artwork… this might help you make some decisions to give the painting the emotional key it needs.
 Or if you are decorating your rooms… maybe you might re think that silver and black combo in the living area if you plan to entertain friends… they will feel a little intimidated and uncomfortable… and may not think of your home as very inviting.  Color your world… you have the key.
