I love the neutrality of gray--and mixing several of shades together I paint a lot of my originals on anodized aluminum, which has a light gray sheen to it. It's spectacular! Color pops off of it beautifully. It's a great backdrop. Gray is peaceful and offers an unmatched level of serenity and can turn energy into stillness. Such a beautiful neutral.
