October seems to be a month where I think more about signs. I came across this quote by artist Keith Haring:
Favorite color? Red is one of the strongest colors, it’s blood, it has a power with the eye. That’s why traffic lights are red I guess, and stop signs as well… In fact I use red in all of my paintings.
Wickeds, do you have a color that has a special meaning attached to it? Do you have a favorite color? Does that color change with the seasons? Or has it changed throughout the years?
Edith/Maddie: For many years I’ve said purple was my favorite color, which doesn’t change with the seasons. I’ve evolved into wearing shades of turquoise/aqua in the last decade, which I love. But before my hair turned silver, with my skin tone keeping company, I wore a lot of red with my dark brown locks. Now the color seems jarring on me, and I wear my Christmas red sweater sparingly.
Barb: Grandchildren seem to be captivated by the idea of favorite colors. All three of mine can tell you the favorite color of everyone in the family. Mine is green, and while I love all greens, I am particularly partial to the deep greens, anything from emerald to evergreen. Green seems to be big for clothing this fall, which means I will have to buy too many clothes as a hedge against the time when the trend swings back to browns or pinks.
Jessie: I am not sure that I have one favorite color to rule them all. For
Sherry: I tend to love shades of blue. My favorite is cobalt blue which is probably why I have a collection of cobalt glass. I also love aquas and sky blue. Most of the artwork in our house has some shade of blue in it.
Liz: Purple is definitely my color. It’s said to be a color for “an artistic and unique individual, who is often very intuitive and deeply interested in spirituality” which is totally me to a tee! I even found this old gem from childhood that was a whole framed poem someone got me about being “a purple person.” It’s the signature color of my Full Moon Mysteries too.
Julie: I have always liked blue, and said that for years. But now I’d have to say my favorite color is red. I love the impact it has, and how it calls the eye. Also, it’s my favorite lipstick color. Were I to be honest, I’d actually say black. I love the winter colors.
