The Color Blue—Calm and Comforting

The Color Blue

Colors are known to invoke an emotional response, impact mood, and even have healing powers.

Blue symbolizes trust, wisdom, intelligence, faith, and truth.

Quiet, peace and serenity are all equated to the color blue. Just think of relaxing on the beach with an ocean of cool, calm, blue water stretching out as far as the eye can see.

The color blue helps you wind down and rest as it relaxes your muscles and quiets the mind.

Blue is also the color of spirituality and thought. Blue counters chaos and agitation bringing peace and serenity to the troubled mind.

Blue is also known to open the flow of communication and broaden one’s perspective to learn new information.

As a photographer, I challenged myself to create images that featured a dominant color chosen for its beneficial characteristics.

The images Glass Works 08 and Water Works 09 feature blue.

Is there is a space in your home or business that would benefit from the characteristics of the color blue? If so, I invite you to take a closer look at these two photographs, as well as other images featuring blue, by following the links below.

Stay tuned—I’ll be featuring more images and their color characteristics in future posts.
