Colorful Personalities?

Following is from a website I follow –
I think it applies greatly to my philosophy of teaching and are making.
Tell me, what advice would you give a child who came to you asking what their favorite color should be?

To follow their heart? That no color is right or wrong? That if they wanted to, they could always change their mind later, any number of times? That their happiness with their choice is all that matters? Not to give it too much importance? That they don't have to decide at all? That you approve no matter what they choose?

Now, what if they protested because they had heard from friends that there was a special color assigned to them at birth; their soul-color. They felt that a numerology reading might shed some light on their confusion. They wanted confirmation of their choices through a zodiac chart, tea leaves, and a Ouija board. And they asked if hiring a coach, therapist, or guru would be a good idea.

Yep, this is what I hear every day, just not so much for colors...

Sorry to lay this on you. I'm just fishing around for some new answers to the bazillion questions I get each week about careers, loves, and destinies - which to me, from here, are kind of like... crayons.

Ewhhhh, nice magenta!

So what color are you today!

Since I was a kid, my own favourite colour has always been 'green' which I know covers a lot, but preferably a nice strong dark green or something new spring growth citrusy. I though you were going to reveal what your favourite colour was - or whether you were going to wonder out loud what colour others associate with you? In this case, I think of you as linked to a soft smokey light blue.

Thanks- I do like most smoky colors- hard to pin down. I have always prefer the cool tones- and especially greens.

I love working with flowing purple and gold washes of color. It somehow eases me into the blank page to allow me to give voice to my imagination.

I like combining purple and yellow- and depending on the paint you get a cool salmon color.
I never wash my brush when I paint fabrics and get serendipitous results.
