To me, red is delicious, vibrant & alive!   I find that my paintings with red ground me and give me great energy and the stability to move my career forward.   According to, “red is the color of vitality and physical health.  Passion and life-instincts are strong red energies.”  The first chakra, called either the ROOT or BASE chakra is associated with the color red.  Some of its qualities are groundedness, survival, power to achieve goals, courage and trust.
