Although I have never officially had a happy red room, I think everyone should have a so called “happy” room. I have been spotting lots of red lately and it looks so happy to me. It seems to have a little bit of cherry and a fresh squeeze of orange. This is a painting I did in gouache a few years ago and I love it.
Imagine a room in your home washed in a happy color. What color would make you happy? Did I mention, I live in shades of white? Working with color makes me crave a blank canvas of white or a clean slate to work from.
