It's interesting that throughout time 'COLOR' has always played a major part in our lives.
Without color, our lives would be absolutely boring. It appeals to our senses in every direction and makes us feel happy , spiritual or sad.
i tend to use allot of different colors in my art work yet its quite interesting that around my home and surroundings i happen to love earth colors such as terracotta,shades of brown,olives etc.but as a person i love to wear color.i am not your typical blue,black or gray kind of person.some of my favorite colors are red, shades of blue green,and lately for some odd reason i love shades of purple.
It is quite obvious that as we age our color sense changes and we tend to like certain colors more than others.
But then of course we also tend to also go with colors that match our skin tones,hair etc inspite of the fact they do not appeal to us emotionally but they look good on us as we try to make ourselves feel good and younger.
Color does play a huge part of our lives no doubt from clothes,to our homes and even to the foods we love to eat.
