The color blue evokes serenity, spirituality, infinity. Lay back and look at heaven. The 5th chakra: the throat, voice and self-expression. Deep blues: singing, listening. Sea and shadow. Blue symbolizes the Virgin Mary. Krishna has blue skin. Fifty-three percent of the world’s flags have blue. It’s the color most commonly used in corporate identities. Miles Davis was kind of blue. What kind of blue are you?
Harbor Town, mixed media on cradled panel, 32″ x 32″, $1800
This painting was inspired by the Boston Harbor which I lived near a few years ago. The water is made from many layers of translucent mulberry paper which I painted all these wonderful shades of blue.
