day 5: 12 days of Twelvty

Over the last 12 days of the year I’m sharing my year of color: 12 colors in 12 months. Today –
Twelvty-Five: Blue


Twelvty-Five: Blue

awash with all things cool, fresh and blue!



“Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight.”
~John Ruskin

blue in the color wheel
Color is an integral part to all types of creativity,
it influences our moods and emotions, it’s linked with memories. Colors have been assigned meanings and connections throughout history and around the world.

When we tune our eyes in to notice the colors around us, life becomes brighter and more vibrant.

2017 has been a year full of color, an adventure I’m sharing in an online program called TWELVTY.  Every month I’ve been playing just in the month’s colors, and each month I added to this mixed media art journal.


Over the last 12 days of the year I want to show you a glimpse of this project.

We began with Yellow, Yellow-Green, then Green and Blue-Green tomorrow we’ll step around to Twelvty-Six: Blue-Violet
