100 – How Good is Your Color Memory?

January 25, 2021 By

My color memory is such that I can go to a fabric store and quite accurately remember the colors and patterns that are in my fabric collection. It comes as a bit of a surprise to me when I pick colors out for a fabric collage and see that my choices are really off the mark for an accurate representation. Here you can see I was looking at yellows and oranges to make the mouse trap cage, when the actual color is much more red.

What difference, you might think. And you’d be somewhat correct. I’m positive that I could make a convincing mouse trap cage in any color, but would you think “Mouse Trap” board game?  I’m trying to catch that instant association….Wait, I just saw that the modern game has a different color trap.  Oh well, I’ll still go with red for the drama!
