Wednesday's Blart - The effects of color

I have a passion for COLOR!  Vibrant and bold colors are the foundation for most of my work.  I have always been fascinated with color theory and the effects of color.  There have been studies to indicate that the color blue is an appetite suppressant.  Weight loss plans suggest putting your food on blue plates.  Dramatic results can also be achieved by using a blue light bulb for your dining area.  Why?  Blue food is a rare occurrence in nature. There are no leafy blue vegetables (blue lettuce?), no blue meats (blueburger, well-done please), and aside from blueberries and a few blue-purple potatoes from remote spots on the globe, blue just doesn't exist in any significant quantity as a natural food color.  I must admit that blue food would not appeal to me.  Blue is beautiful but best left on the painter's palette....or better yet nature's palette

Wow! I suppose the term 'Blue Plate Special' could take on a new meaning.  Check out Knoxville's Blue Plate Special on WDVX everyday at noon.
