I’m loving every second of abstract art. This should be a fun year. My art goals for 2017 now show on my sidebar.
Blue is a color I use quite often in my art and more recently turquoise has made it’s permanent mark. I’ve seen it so much that I’m beginning to think about its use, what does it mean to me, what does it symbolize and will it, like other colors, keep its meaning over time?
My page calledÂ Art TherapyÂ talks about color choices and art symbols specific to me. Off the top of my head I would place turquoise next to blue and purple symbols. I see it as a color of strength, of depth, honor, birth rights.
I can’t help but mix turquoise with gold though. I gotta let a little bit of gold hit the sides of wet turquoise thenÂ ping the edges with midnight blue. It’s as if that’s how it’s supposed to be, not could be but that’s how the eyes of my heart say those colors should meld. I enjoy watching them flow together at their own speed and settle on their own time. It’s a beautiful thing to watch paint drip and find it’s way to a resting place, because it can.
