Flowers, Colors and Emotions: your allies after the loss of your 4-legged friend

Colors and emotions are closely linked, as demonstrated by several scientific studies.

Colors can make you feel sad and distressed, but they can also bring you a lot of happiness and lightheartedness. This is one of the "secrets" that allow me, through the creation of personalized portraits of pets, to help people overcome difficult moments.

Especially after the loss of your four-legged friend.

In this post I'll explain you how and why I use color within my commissioned portraits.

Colorful portraits as a weapon against pet loss

As I told you in the previous article (I suggest you read it click here) through the personalized portrait of his pet - with its flowers and colors - I helped Carlo and many other people to overcome difficult moments.

Difficult times that can be as example:

  • a loss of one's 4-legged friend due to old age or an accident
  • an "apparent" loss, as happened to Carlo who lost his Sally (but fortunately found her again a few months later).

I myself used flowers and colors to get through the loss of my beloved Argo (I tell you about my experience in this article).

His portrait really helped me and gave life to my business as well.

Every day in the morning I would take a few minutes to look at it, to remember the beautiful moments we spent together.

I found that the sadness faded away, making way for a peaceful and positive day, with no worries or anxieties. That's why I chose to paint portraits with colorful flowers!

But do you want to know what colors I often use in portraits? I'll tell you right now.


Chromotherapy, how colorful portraits calm stress and worries

The influence that colors have on everyone's life is obvious and undeniable.

Have you ever wondered what a black and white life would be like without color?

What and how would it change?

Their presence is a source of emotion and stimulation.

Today, colors are the basis of many treatments related to psychophysical well-being: chromopuncture, color therapy, art therapy, or the possibility of relaxing through the coloring of a drawing.

And it is precisely this last aspect that gave birth to Flowerpup.

Thanks to the design, its colors and its positivity, I transmit calm and serenity to all those who have lost their pets, through my personalized portraits.

The colors are a wonderful magic that calms anxiety and stress.

Let's see together which are the colors that most help to restore a positive balance and decrease stress, and they are the ones I use in my drawings.


Chromotherapy: meaning of colors in art

The main colors I use to draw your furry friend are as follows:

  • RED, which expresses the intensity of emotions such as love and serenity.
  • ORANGE: stimulates joy, optimism. It acts mainly at an emotional level, with a strong antidepressant action.
  • YELLOW: acts mainly on the mental level, giving vitality and serenity to those who look at it. It's my favorite color (in fact you often see yellow flowers, as sunflowers, in my portraits. I love it!)
  • GREEN: gives harmony and relaxation. It's useful for balancing the emotionality.
  • BLUE is sedative, calming and gives fresher air, calming the nervous system from heavy worries.
  • INDIGO: is also a color that cools and acts on the spiritual part, on a subtle level. It speaks of the unconscious and helps to calm pain.
  • VIOLET: is a color that works on conflicts, easing nerves and making peace with yourself.



In this article, I've shown you how the colors within my portraits can help you, or help your loved ones, get through times of discouragement, stress and worry.

All you have to do is commission your portrait to me, I can't wait to paint for you and give you the serenity you deserve!

I'll be waiting for you,
