Art is the reason I’m not crazy.
To the extent that I managed to translate the emotions into images– that is to say, to find the images which were concealed in the emotions– I was inwardly calmed and reassured. Had I left those images hidden in the emotions, I might have been torn to pieces by them…… Carl Jung
Last month I featured the eyes of figures seen in my art, this month I will focus on color themes with blue taking the lead. I’m an emotional artist which means, what I feel determines the colors I use. I noticed a pattern years ago that I use certain colors to represent emotion or experiences. Orange, as explained in the Art Therapy gallery, signifies fleeting courage or self doubt, ambiguity.
When painting faces I’m very careful specific with what colors I want on or around the head and face. It is highly unusual to use yellow on the face of a subject but it is common to use orange, blue or red. Power colors stay on the face … usually.
Orange: I think I can
