The color green. . . What does it mean? What does it represent? How does it inspire you? In general, colors have the ability to influence our feelings and emotions in a way that few other mediums can. With Spring right around the corner, I thought it would be a great color to feature (plus, this is my friend Jill's favorite color;). According to several websites it symbolizes nature, growth, freshness and harmony. It is a restful and calming color - and an opposite to red, which signifies safety. And of course the color green represents green living. Green light go!
