The Blues (in a Good Way)

As an artist, I’m constantly studying color, how it makes us feel and how to mix and blend hues to depict what I see in nature. Blue is interesting as it’s considered the world’s most popular color and yet the word “blue” is associated with sadness and gloom dating back to the 17th century.
