Artists/Crafters! Your thoughts about color....

I am putting out a call for your thoughts about color, and an image of your work to share with my readers. I am on a personal quest to find out what inspires and influences to colors we use in our creations. Some questions to consider"

  • Do you believe the region of the country you live in, or city vs. country, influences your chosen color palette?
  • Does your color palette change because off current color in fashion or media?
  • Are you challenged to find a color palette that defines you as an artist?
  • Are you challenged to constantly redefine your work with color?
  • Are the colors you chose to work with influenced by the type of media you work in?
  • How do you choose the colors you work with?
  • Is your color palette chosen based on personal taste, or your perception of your own self?
  • Do outside forces like music, politics, seasons, job environment, friendships etc. influence your color choices?
  • Is your choice of color completely random? A matter of whatever is available to work with at the time a project is begun?
  • Are your color choices formulaic, or based on spiritual meaning of color?
I want to know everything. Choose as many or as few of these aspects to talk about. There is no limit on length or brevity of your post. Please include an image of your work, and any links you would like to include. Your name will go into a drawing for a $75.00 custom piece of art jewelry made by me, just for you. The drawing will be February 1st, 2009. This date marks the one year anniversary of making my love and passion for making art jewelry a business. The aim here is to inspire each other, while looking inside ourselves to understand better why we make the choices we make in our art, and seeing more clearly what our own artistic voice is. If we know where we are coming from, we will know where we want to go. Please send your email to To see images of my work on the web, go to
