This weeks APR theme is
Your favourite colour.
Way back in 1969
Neil Armstrong made one giant step onto the moon
and in November of that same year
a little 8 year old girl had the same experience
(no not the moon but just as big a step).
We emigrated to Australia from England
and as soon as I got off of the boat,
I looked up and saw the bluest sky I had ever seen.
That colour has stayed with me through all of my art.
The sky is still that beautiful colour and now I am lucky enough
to live by the ocean as well.
My favourite colours to paint with are blue and yellow.
I didn't have time to do a special painting for this week,
so here are some of my favourite blues.
I did this painting in oils, it's 2' x 3' and took forever to do.
even my fun acrylic paintings have the blue in them.
I don't think I have many paintings without blue,
except of course my pet portraits
but someone might want me to paint a blue poodle,
you never know.
My favourite blue at the moment is my new mug
that my gorgeous girls just bought me.
Oh yeh, that's right, I'm a Dr Who fan,
been watching it since the 60's
don't like the new bloke though, give me David Tennant anyday.
The amazing thing is
the cup is much bigger on the inside
and it keeps moving and turning up
in different places.
I'm linking up to Jenn's Artists Playroom
and Paint Party Friday,
so why not hop on over and
I have a pussy cat to paint
and no it's not blue.
