Monday Dose of Inspiration: The India Blues


A blue Monday. I saw a picture in a magazine that had a blue object like the blue of India, where there is every shade and found everywhere, every. single. day. It's infinite. I may need to paint something some shade of blue, in any of it's incarnations: indigo, teal, deep aqua...to remind me of India and how the blue there always inspires and cools after the bright heat of everything else that happens along the way.

Just catching up on you.... what gorgeous colors! How was the North Fork? That pic of Jim in CO is a little scary. Sexy, but scary. Happy Anniversary to M&D!

The medium shade of blue in the last photo is the most perfect shade of blue imaginable.

ahhh...such a rest for the eyes...blues in india are truly another thing of mystery...i remember being mesmerized as a child by the fact the Indians even painted Krishna as blue!
