Shades of Blue

Shades of blue 8 x 10

Sometimes when I paint, I use many colors to give a picture character. Other times, like when I painted this picture, I use one color, perhaps in several shades. Between layering, scraping, pushing or pulling the iron that I use – I ended up with a character filled picture with only one color.

At times in life I try to use too many colors – when only one will do. One activity, one accomplishment, or one quiet moment.
