Day 132 – The New Blue

Blue.

Why does such a fan-tabulous color have to mean sad. I don’t so much care that the color and meaning are linked to Greek mythology and Zeus creating rain storms when he was melancholy or that a ship that lost its captain during a voyage flew a blue flag. I like the German’s approach best that blue means someone who’s drunk.

Isn’t language grand!

How do we ever figure one another out? I’m thinking you are sad and a German is thinking you spent too much time in the “biergarten.” Colors should not be associated with emotions because you then end up with “seeing red” ¬†and anger vs. Valentine’s Day and love. Red definitely has an identity crisis! I know – it’s sheer silliness, but latching onto a color can also create brilliance in branding. I’m green with envy over any emotion, product, or cause that has¬†managed to have a corner on the market of a color!

Until tomorrow.

Day 132 was created in the new blue – one for Spondylitis!

    Nice one Jen :) I like blue, it’s one of my favourite colours – well turquoise is actually! I never associate blue with feeling down. Blue reminds me of the ocean and the sky and those things make me feel happy and alive.

    Keep up the awesome work.

      Naomi, I love blue for the same reasons. Thank you for all of your support. I’d like you to have this piece – it won’t be until I finish the project but I really want you to have this one. Jenna

    My favorite color is pink. But blue is beautiful, like Naomi said, when I saw blue I feel peace like when I can stand in the beach.
    This paint is lovely, I feel peace when I see this apple, I feel melancholy because I start to remember when I was living in Florida.
    Sweet Hugs!
