Feeling blue...



What is blue?






Blue is a sapphire sky, 

On a hot summer's day, 


Blue is the ocean, 

Deep and crystal clear, 


Blue is a forget me not, 

Blowing in the wind.

I could stop there but there is always another story.

My blue painting has been reworked several times...



Here is the painting before I began.

I wanted to calm the image.






It might seem easy but it has taken three days of struggle.


There was a lot of scraping back 

and rubbing down as I tried to get what I wanted.


Actually, I wasn't sure what I wanted.

I thought I should include some strong marks,

and maybe some additional colour.



Resisting the urge to add, instead I subtracted.

This has given my picture space to 'breathe'.



It's a calm place to be.






'Deep in thought'



Oils and cold wax medium on 16 x 16 inch canvas.




Thank you for visiting...

Until next time.
