Illustration Friday: the blues


My submission for Illustration Friday's "the blues" is a dimensional painting called "Gated Love". I did a few dimensional pieces using the blue on blue with the trees. You may recall my posting this painting "Enchanted Forest". Blue is my favourite colour.

I had a blue period once; but the wheels fell off and it rolled over dead. I like yours. Pax et Amo. Bad Dog.

Hi Val,
How are you?
I like the blue and the angel which waits vainly to launch the Cupid's darts on some people pass by this way.
Excellent week and beautiful painting.
