The Most Popular Color in the World is...


According to a survey by three global marketing firms, people in 17 countries favored blue over other colors.  Blue is my favorite color in art too.  Where would Van Gogh's paintings be without blue?

Van Gogh,   Starry Night Over the Rhone,   1888
or Hokusai's famous woodcut....

Hokusai,   The Great Wave,    1830
 or Chagall's lovers...

Chagall,    The Blue Lovers,   1914

(Interesting fact about white....Japanese brides wear white to symbolize death...death of their former family and the beginning of a new family! )
