Today I am showing two small paintings on Mura Udaban A Itaboshi HM paper from Washi Arts. They are titled "Too Blue I and II".  There are times when nature almost seems unreal. The colors are so bright or deep that it is hard to believe they come from nature. I know the mountains that circle the valley are so green in winter that they appear an unreal and intense emerald green. I have also seen the ocean appear to be an amazing blue or Too Blue to believe. It has been, "A Painting Day".

As usual I love your colors and design, Ruth. I have to say that these both remind me of ancient explorers maps of the world!

Bruce, I love your thoughts and observations on the two new "Too Blue" paintings. I am sure the explorers thought there was a lot of blue too on the maps they studied.

these are as perfect as the words that accompany them! WONDERFUL! and my favorite colors.

thank you so much for the kind words! i hope you're well and enjoying the summer. you work certainly reflect that. they say when one is at peace within, the colors in nature appear more vibrant that seems possible.
