Why I chose this color? Orange is associated with energy, happiness, and benign warmth of sun. It combines stimulation or aggression of red, calmed by cheerfulness of yellow. It is full of vitality. I love this color because it is found in nature in changing seasons between hot summer and cool winter, changing leaves of fall, and is found in the setting sun, citrus fruit. It is the color fall and harvest. All of these just make me happy.
