Gotta Love It: Orange

Gotta Love it: The Color Orange

I appreciate the color orange.

Today, I am thankful for the color orange, and the fruit.

Although a single orange now-a-days may cost a few more coins than two cents to actually purchase, here are thoughts on the color orange worth more than two cents.  Enjoy this Two-Cent Tuesday Post, that has a focus on the color orange.

What feelings are brought to the surface when you see the color orange?  Maybe you think of a sunset, a sport team or the fruit? I think of summer and the sweet smell of orange juice as well as autumn and the changing leaf colors when I think of the color orange.  It is said that people who like the color orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Does that fit your personality?

Orange seems to evoke a sense of warmth and power. It is said to be one of the “healing” colors. Have you ever heard that if a change of any kind is need in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights? I’ll have to try that one.

Is it also true that the color orange increases food cravings? Knowing this association, I may try to avoid using an orange plate!  Orange is also given credit for stimulation of enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality.  This color is said to be great for personal power, self esteem, mental quickness and adaptability to change.  Is this because the color can just “jump out” to you?  You can decide that property and effect it has on you.

Put some orange color into your life when you need:

  • to spice things up when time seems to drag
  • to enhance your curiosity
  • to become more focused
  • to increase creativity
  • relief from bland situations

 I love orange and the vibrant leaf colors that include orange. I took this photo in the mountains of Western Carolina.

It  was also inspirational when I painted using acrylics and alcohol inks on this canvas.

The color orange has also been included in my jewelry designs. Here are a few items I created that highlight the color orange.  Maybe orange is pleasing to you as well?
