Color Story

Easter is almost here and all of the things that come with it. The end of a long cold winter leads us to celebrating the joy of color. Flowers in the garden, the scents of nature, a vibrant sky and birds once again chirping with happiness. I have always loved the hues of Easter and the moods and memories they evoke.

I did lots of these color studies in design school. Truly not as easy as it appears.

 

 

Have you ever wondered what the significance of Easter colors were? Well, I did while running this evening, so I have done some research. Here are some of my favorites.

 

GREEN: The color green brings a ray of hope. Green is the color of grass.
