Something Blue

“Bits & Pieces”, paper and paint collage, France 2019 Art, Mixed Media

Everything is coming up blue including my newest piece of mixed media art. And ironically yet typically, virtually everything I read lately has to do with the color blue…from artwork by Pablo Picasso created during his self-proclaimed “The Blue Period”, when he only painted in shades of blue and blue-green to Wassily Kandinski’s “Blue Rider Period” to three of my favorite albums of all time…Miles Davis “Kind of Blue”, Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” (a masterpiece of sadness) and “The Blue Notebooks”, by Max Richter, my favorite minimalist composer. Maybe I’ll just start coloring my world blue…all I need is a blue crayon, blue marker and/or blue paint and some paper to paint my world blue.
