“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.”
I love the above quote, which inspired me to write how I feel...colors have an amazing influence without us even knowing. As an artist and one who believes that, I started to think how color affects our decisions each day. I truly believe that colors have a true power in our everyday activities and emotions. If you really think about it, colors can predict how our day will go.
Here's what I mean, colors express certain feelings, which affect the brain to create specific emotions and actions. Which leads me to ask a few key questions in an effort to make sure we are not only reaching creative selves, but are we creating certain moods? Can we influence the atmosphere that surrounds us, or how we interact with people?
