Shades of dark blue

I really like red but not just any red. Vibrant red. I think I must feel red emotionally. In the fall I remember candy red apples we used to almost lose a filling eating. Ever see those anymore?  I love the color of red candy apples. And red cars.  Yum on both. 

Red, while deeply attractive, can be overkill. The red sports car you buy during a midlife crisis or the red room you hate in the middle of painting it.  If you know about paint you will know that overkill… Kilz. 

I have found that in painting, red brilliantly pairs with all kinds of color. I try to think of any color red looks bad with. And it sings next to blue. Cue the flag.


I think red’s vibrancy touches the heart. 

All that about red and I prepped a canvas with shades of dark blue. I’m not sure yet what it’s going to be. Maybe a red rose or a red camaro at night. 

Here is my blued canvas next to my “Antiques” painting for color. 


In see grass in those blue streaks. 

I’d love to hear what you have to say.
