Do You Like Rainbows ... - ... show your colors

There's something satisfying about ROY G BIV that attracts us visually. The arrangement of the color bands appeals to all, especially to children, and everyone who loves vibrant pop art. Rainbows symbolize peace and diversity in today's cultural iconic language.

A lovely Irish blessing complete with the route to that pot o' gold ...

Wishing you a rainbow

For sunlight after showers -

Miles and miles of Irish smiles

For golden happy hours -

Shamrocks at your doorway

For luck and laughter too,

And a host of friends that never ends

Each day your whole life through!

Rainbows always delight me and when I find a great photo of a real rainbow I like to save it in my collection of inspirational art. Here is a list of rainbow pictures I've found online that I think are really beautiful and that you can use for inspiration or as rainbow art. Some of these photos aren't rainbows in the sky, they're rainbows created by light, or rainbow effects created by other objects. If there's a rainbow in the photo and it's artistic, it's in this list of rainbow photographs. Some of the rainbow photos in this list are free for personal use - others are presented in collections to delight and inspire as only rainbows can.
