Blue 1 is the first painting from my revived artistic side. The idea for this painting came from a drawing I made for a patient at Methodist. I don’t recall the circumstances, but a patient asked me to draw her a rose, a blue rose. Blue is my favorite color and I really like how it turned out. I used a canvas that had a barely started painting that I hated (Recycling is always good). Blue 1 focuses on the use of color. In real life it has a cool refreshing appearance, as if you could almost dive in on a hot day. It also seems to glow and the pedal pattern can play tricks with your eyes, if you look at it for too long. It can only really be appreciated by seeing it in person.
