Never Knew How Fond I Was of Blue

My friend Tom, upon viewing some of my recent artwork, commented that blue must be my favorite color. I never thought it was. Do I even have a favorite color?
I signed up for another Paper Whimsy Ning Group swap - My Whimsical & Enchanted Room. The challenge was to take a favorite fairytale, poem or story and create a whimsical and enchanted room. Choosing the theme was easy. I knew immediately Thumbelina was the tale I wanted to depict. I shopped the Paper Whimsy store for some new digital collage sheets, hauled out the massive art supplies and proceeded to create, and re-create, and re-create. Initially, I was working in browns and oranges. Okay, but not exactly what I envisioned. Got into some pinks and purples. That wasn't working for me at all. Blue! What about blues? It made me laugh, but it was just what I was looking for.
So, yes, for now anyway, blue is my favorite color.

HEY KNOW I love Thumbelina and what you made for PW.
AND I love your blog. YES, blue is YOU so go with it!
Thanks for posting on my blog about the ATC's. I'm a crazed woman ~ and the weather is awful so I'm inside playing in the studio.
Looking forward to seeing more of your blog, your art, and YOU!
