What is it about the color blue?


What comes to mind when you think of the color blue? Is it the sky and the sea? Lapis Lazuli in ancient Egyptian art, delft pottery from Holland, Chinese porcelain, Picasso's blue period, the windows of Chartre Cathedral? In music it is both happy - "Blue skies, nothing but blue skies...", or sad - "I've got a feeling called the blues since my baby said goodbye".

It has so many meanings - open spaces, freedom, intuition and imagination, and its more spiritual meanings - loyalty, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith and heaven. And then there is the signifcance beyond meanings that form your own personal style. Why are we drawn to wear certain colors over others? I have found that so many of my summer clothes are varying shades of blue. This is true in jewelry choices as well. Who knew that my unconscious mind could make such lovely choices. Open up - embrace how color makes you feel.
