Our Mistress of Ceremonies for the Five Minute Friday is Kate over at Heading Home. Hope you link up with us and join the fun.
I like blue. I love using the color blue in my art. It's a very calming color. The color of ocean, sky, and various flowers. I like blueberries. I like the old blues music of my parent's generation. The songs Blue Suede Shoes and Blue Monday come to mind. Makes me smile. Blue can bring joy.
However, blue can bring sorrow also. I don't like feeling blue, and I have been lately. Instead of the relaxing color of calm, blue becomes the engulfing hole of despair.
I may use blue to come out of my blues. I still have a couple of canvases and some watercolor paper, so I think a painting marathon is in order this week. Taking picture of pretty scenery with blue is in order. Maybe I can do that on my ride tomorrow.
I need to rise out of the blue.
