But, here’s the thing. Orange is worthy of our respect. It is one of the seven named colors of the spectrum. Think about that…only seven colors made the cut and orange is one of them.
But, after the impressionists and with the advent of the 21st century, orange was no longer the darling of the art word…orange became the color of safety…and became associated with Agent Orange…and orange shag carpet…yes, orange fell on hard times.
Despite the bad rap, I love orange. Looking at it makes me happy — like yellow. It never fails to lift my spirits. Many of my favorite flowers and foods are orange colored. I have a pair of orange shoes which I love and I even had orange hair for awhile…
In closing, I invite you to enjoy a little Pinterest board I put together with some images featuring orange which I love and encourage you to work orange into your color palette if it’s not something that you normally do. Here is the link to the Pinterest board. Enjoy!
