We've been remodeling...Do you like color

Okay this turned into an art lesson.  So here goes.

I'm a little nutty... I guess it is that creative nerve that keeps demolishing my "let's just chill and be happy with this"... I can't stop changing stuff.  It's just my nature.  I love too many things.  People ask for a favorite color... Most people can choose this.  Do you have a favorite color?  I don't.  I can't pick ONE color!  Ugh. What a nightmare!  Out of the bajillion color choices .. "so, what's your favorite color?"  WHAT?  This may have been one of the most difficult questions on any questionnaire I have ever encountered.  Literally millions of color combos and I need to choose ONE.  Well, that is impossible...today it's blue, tomorrow it's yellow, then let's throw in orange... and well red goes great here.... I do tend to be addicted to neutrals which don't seem to be colors at all until you understand what it's like to be an art major and you realize that this white has more blue in it and this white has yellow in it and this blue tends to the green side and this beige leans toward the yellow side.  Have you ever really looked at color?  Snow is blue and purple in shadows.  And you will rarely need pure white to paint a snow scene.  Yes, it really is full  of color.  Take a look.  Objects closer to you have a warmer color tone than colors farther away from you.   So, when I look at color and so many choices in so many things I tend to change my mind based on the mood of the day or the weather or just plain fun-ness.  I like to change things.  So, I have remodeled my website.  I think I like the new feel.  I like the idea of something cleaner and simpler.  Less distraction equals more focus on the images you see.  The images are the "color".  Pure, clean, simple.

Of course I have tiny bit of color here.  I chose a very pale blue.  I tend to be addicted to that color lately.  That, and yellow and green and gray, oh my.  I think my couch needs a bit of a new color splash as well.  The "new" couch :)   My mind trails off.. another color choice..

 

So, do you have a favorite color? 

If you like yellow.. does that mean you like a yellow with a little more blue it?  Like a very pale green...Or do you like a pure yellow?  Like primary color yellow...?  Or how about yellow with some white? a pale yellow... or yellow with some black?  Maybe yellow with some brown or possibly a more orange yellow?  Do you see what I am getting at here?  I don't see how anyone can really answer this question without a paint sample in their hand. 

Maybe most people are thinking primary and secondary colors...

Me.. I am thinking about a bottle of primary colors, white and brown and the millions of colors I can create from that combination.  Awesome.
