As we await...

...the arrival of 2017 it's a time of quiet reflection, and what better colour to accompany that than the peaceful ease of the colour blue.

From journal pages


 to Gelli prints,


blue peeks out everywhere in the studio.


 I've turned hand-painted papers into blue flowers,


 and created Wingdings with it.


 It shows up in heavily textured pieces


 and in those that are quietly behaving themselves.


 Blue philosophizes

 and plays well with green and a host of other colours.


What a perfect colour with which to end a chaotic year, don't you think?

Here's hoping that all your wishes for 2017 come true, in a big way.  xo

    1. I suspect you're baking in that summer heat, Tracy...I know we feel the same way here when it hits, but right now I could use a lot of it. We've snow, snow and more snow, with icy winds and streets...most unusual for our corner of BC.
