The Pink Room

I recently painted my office/studio pink. It’s very pink.
I say that for your benefit, not mine.
I know it’s pink.
I painted it.

All the same, it’s very pink.

When my daughter was in high school, she painted what was then her bedroom three shades of pink with the fourth wall black.
When she moved out, it became my work space.
Then we moved.
I missed my “pink room”.

In the new house, my office came with one black wall! (And three Crayola flesh tone walls. Okay, peach.) I thought, Sweet, one quarter of the way done. When they finished our bathroom reconstruction (that’s a blog to come…), I took the opportunity to complete my studio.

It’s done. It’s pink. I love it.

The meaning of the color PINK is unconditional love and nurturing.

“The color pink represents compassion, nurturing, and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing.

A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.

Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy.”

I look forward to having my creativity unconditionally loved and nurtured in my Pink Room

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.

    Mary, so happy for you to have a special place for your writing…just wanted to add that Pink is also the color used to calm down those who are being contained by the police…that is also a very special, unique and important room!
    with words to live by and wonder about…Kelly
