Is White A Color?

_
The answers are many and conflicting.
_
It depends upon whom you ask. Scientists consider black to be the absence of color and white to be the presence of all colors. Fine artists, on the other hand, believe the complete reverse: white is the absence of color.

I asked my three youngest children if white was a color and my 7 year old son just pointed to a cloud and said with complete confidence, "There it is."
_
Whatever the case - I love the "COLOR" white!!

Even though I'm an artist.. I prefer the scientific explanation. I like to think there is a rainbow in white.. which has a luminous quality that gives you a quiet joy and peace. I love white.

Beautiful post.. what a pretty bird. :)

Maybe it is the serenity in white that I love so much. I also love the concept of all the colors blending into one pure perfect white light.

Thanks for the comments!!

I always knew white and black as shades, not colors. In art class we were always told that. So I guess you could say they are the shades of all colors.

White is my favorite color too...for both the artistic and scientific explanations. I am also an artist (just like just.boxes) but see it as the "completion" of colors. :)
