I’m writing a book! I haven’t been able to work on it too much lately, but I have pulled photos.
Take a look and let me know what you think…
Title: BLUE IS THE COLOR OF MY LIFE
Dedication: Book is dedicated to my son who is the light of my life, my parents (deceased) who always encouraged my artistic abilities, and my boyfriend who has wanted nothing more than for me to be myself and do what makes me happy.
This book is about blue…the color, the object and the feeling, anything and everything blue!
Definition of Blue: any of several colors whose hue is or resembles that of the zenith of the sky (Webster’s New Collegiat Dictionary, 1961)
Blue is one of three primary colours of pigments in painting and traditional colour theory, as well as in the RGB color model (Wikipedia)
“Blue is the color of peace. Water is blue. I like blue because it just puts me at peace. The patriotic symbol is blue. I just like blue.” – Antonio Brown
“The sky, the sky is blue.” – Ryan Stiles
“Blue oblivion, largely lit, smiled and smiled at me.” – William Rose Benet
aquamarine: named for the Latin phrase ” water of the sea” is the blue to blue-green variety Beryl. Beryl also contains other gem varieties including Emerald, and some lesser known varieties such as Morganite and Heliodor. (minerals.net)
Spiritual meaning: it is calming, soothing and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of the mermaids and was used by sailors as a taliman of good luck, fearlessness, and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. (crystalvaults.com)
“Life is simple, it”s either cherry red of midnight blue.” – Lou Gramm
Obviously this isn’t all I have…just a sampling! I doubt it’s in the right order either, I just pulled photos in the file and uploaded them. It’s mostly going to be a coffee table type book, I do believe. Pictures,definitions,dedication,”why blue?”… I think I need more info/quotes. Once I start printing it out, I’ll know how much more I need. (I think I’ll do more posts…part 1, part 2, and so on…) I think I have enough photos…
Anyway, let me know what you think so far! Thanks!
