A couple of years ago (2019) I began painting originals for clients--matte black acrylic paint on matte black metal, granite and canvas. I actually love the affect. I also love black. Black is an incredibly strong and powerful color, so I named this piece "Dignity" representing self-respect and the state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect. And added a touch of gold--when I paint gold I paint God--because for me, God's energy dwells within me and reminds me of who I really am. Dignity.
Black on black lends itself to reflection of light and is associated with water elements evoking power, mastery and calm. And a grounding effect when used sparingly. Positive traits of black include protection and comfort, strong, contained.
A color psychologist writes: "Fortunately, some good comes from black’s intimidating disposition. Some people cling to the color black because it makes them feel secure and protected. When surrounded by toxic energy, use black as your shield. I have for years. It's become one of my dearest color friends.
