Sometimes if we aren't feeling very inspired we need a change. A change in environment, a change in the company we keep, maybe even a change in how we perceive ourselves. What is your power color? The color that makes you feels good, strong, or confident. Do ever notice that when you are feeling a certain way you tend to be drawn to certain colors? I know if I am feeling a down, my palette tends to be on the darker side. You can spark creative inspiration just in the colors you wear and surround yourself with.
My power/favorite color is blue specifically, light blue. Blue is been expressed as a color to symbolize loyalty, peace, and creativity, just to name a few characteristics. It has also been said that if you work in an office, a blue room can increase productivity. When I see it, and or wear it, I find myself feeling happier, and it personally can spark my creativity. So I usually have something blue around my studio to help keep the creative flow going.
Think of your favorite color/power color, is it red (known for warmth, love, anger, danger, boldness, excitement, desire, passion, to name a few) or is it yellow (comfort, liveliness, optimism, intellect, happiness, energy, to also name a few). Here is my impromptu idea for the week: Involve your favorite/power color into your weekly regimen. Be it within your clothing, jewelry, a piece of art in your home or office. Keep it around you to see how you feel. Another option is that you can do is to create a piece of art that includes your favorite color in it. Or you can add more of your favorite color into your environment. Let your power colors empower your creativity!
