I’m going to start bringing out some art blogs with colour themes. I know I’ve done this in the past but this time I’m going to have a twist.
The catch with this is looking at art from a zesty new perspective with regard to colour and emotion.
A Spiritually Colourful Palette
As most of you probably know, different colours have different significant meanings. Not only are they used as metaphors — i.e. I’m feeling blue or he was green with envy — but we can also glean meaning from colours with respect to our auric system.

They Call me Mellow Yellow
Here is an extract from the above-mentioned site on the meaning for yellow:
YELLOW AURA COLOR MEANING: Relates to the spleen and life energy. It is the color of awakening, inspiration, intelligence and action shared, creative, playful, optimistic, easy-going.
Light or pale yellow: Emerging psychic and spiritual awareness; optimism and hopefulness; positive excitement about new ideas.
Bright lemon-yellow: Struggling to maintain power and control in a personal or business relationship; fear of losing control, prestige, respect, and/or power.
Clear gold metallic, shiny and bright: Spiritual energy and power activated and awakened; an inspired person.
Very interesting. Now with that in mind, I’ve scrubbed through some of my art with a predominantly yellow theme. Let’s take a fresh new look with those eyes that bare a greater insight now:
Did any of these paintings make you feel any of the emotions from the above definitions for yellow? Or did it leave you cold? Do you believe that colours can evoke certain feelings?
Please feel free to share your experiences and insights.
