Whatever happened to Red?

Once upon a time, red was my default color. In fact, red was dominant in my life for a long time, years and years. If in doubt, use red. Then I had an exhibit I joyfully called Red. Now, to my amazement, I find red a very difficult color. The problem seems to be I want to use it like I always have, but currently, nothing wants to be the same. The sands are shifting under my feet. The default color, right now, wants to be celedon green (a pale bluish green) and variations on it. I guess I’ll just have to see where this takes me.
