I was a red-orange person for years

it was the color I reached for first when selecting fabric.  My love of this color continued on when I began to dye my own cloth and now that I am painting it remained my favor.  Not every piece I paint is some hue or value of red/orange but a lot are.  But of late I find that the first tube of paint I pick up after Sap green is a blue. 
     Why blue and why now.  I'm not sure.  But one thing I am certain of is my choice of color is not because I am a little down.  I am going to chalk up blue as exploration.
I began this piece before I went to Brooksville.  This is where I left it then.
Now it is done and ready to sandwich.

it measures 43 wide by 60 long, of course that measurement will change after it is quilted and cropped down.  It will also look a little different with the addition of more paint and inks that can't be added until after the quilting is done.  Will give you another look see in a week or so.

could it be about a sense of deeper calm, stillness?
