I do not know a lot about thermodynamics, but the absorbion of heat in colored objects does not involve that. The colors, as we percieve them, are waves of light. The light from the sun, has every color light, but we see it as white. When we view the sunlight through quarts, I believe, the light is "split" and we see the colors. The objects in our world absorb the sunlight and certain "colors" bounce back, which is what we see. I'm sure you have heard "You wills tay cooler in the summer if you wear white over black." This is because black absorbs the most while white doesn't; therefore, black is the hottoer color. I may nto have used the proper scientific terms there, but I think it is understandable.
