Moody Blue

Have you noticed I've been missing?  Although I have been thinking and reading 'art' I wasn't in the mood to paint.  I guess I was just wanting a break.  But .... I'm back today with a few more of my Cloud Studies. The top photo was from a reference photo taken in the summer.  I  loved painting this one.  I can almost feel that summer day.

4" x 6", oil on Gessoed watercolor paper 5 1/2" x 7 1/4"

This second reference was from a more recent photo taken when we were experiencing one of our colder days with snow on the ground.

Below is a collage of things I've been working on.
1. Upper left, some yarn and scarf I knitted recently.  Blue is not my favorite color and I think the only blue clothes I own are denim blue ... jeans.  2. One of my friends, who is from Hawaii, recently had a birthday. I decided I would make him a collage card.  As I've mentioned before I love collage! 3. Blue knitted scarf. 4. Oil painting of summer blue sky. 5. More scare. 6. Snowy winter sky.

Blue knit scarf ... blue, what was I thinking ?
