White...Is It A Color?

My son and I have had this discussion before because my favorite color is white. He says that white is not a color.

I agree with some scientists who say that White is the blending of all colors and is a color. Explanation: Light appears colorless or white. Sunlight is white light that is composed of all the colors of the spectrum. A rainbow is proof. You can't see the colors of sunlight except when atmospheric conditions bend the light rays and create a rainbow. You can also use a prism to demonstrate this. Fact: The sum of all the colors of light add up to white.

This is my self-assured color theory but I know it depends on who you ask. Fine artists, on the other hand, believe the complete reverse: white is the absence of color.

OK – so a white flag is universally recognized as a symbol of truce.

Here are some of the many reasons why I LOVE white!

The Ratio is 2:1

Just like in Paris , there is nothing like getting into a pile of white sheets and a feather bed…and staying there for the entire winter.

You know it’s summer when you zip up your white jeans
