BLUE MONDAY: Mixed Blues


Start your week off right. Join me, along with her many other friends, at Smiling Sally's Blue Monday. You will definitely find something to enjoy.


Back in the 60's, I had the privilege of working for a great man. He was a wonderful boss, gentlemen, and artist.

One year at Christmas, he did a large. oil painting of this little greeting card. I was the lucky recipient. It is one of my most treasured pieces of art work.



These two shots are of the finished product. Notice the detail work and the various shades of the blue color.

This is my little, blue Beanie Bear from Japan. He is playing with a blue Texas fish.
