How the Color Red Can Affect You

Colors can and do affect our mood, personality and even brain functions!

In creating my Abstract Paintings, I am influenced by color and find that in turn, the paintings and colors influence the rooms they are placed.

You will see that I often use powerful RED in my abstract painting - and I also use much blue and green, inspired by nature and often conveying relaxation.

Red is a strong emotional color.  Red is most associated with:

  • Intensity
  • Warmth
  • Passion
  • Excitement
  • Love and Deep Emotion
  • Life

Red is associated with increasing appetite - and is often used in restaurants for that reason!

Colors will personally affect you depending on your experiences, taste and even your culture!

Delve into color and when you choose art for your rooms, consider how they could enhance and elevate the room!
