Tuesday Tales – The Language of Colour


Night Flights In Blue

Night Flights In Blue

Colour holds a strong emotional power for me. As a visual artist it is probably not surprising that it would be one of my main forms of communication. Yet unlike verbal expression, colour is a language that can be quite enigmatic for it evokes deeply personal responses.

Why did I choose blue for this piece? It highlights and compliments the earth tones of the skin, both cooling and accentuating the body’s heat. It recalls the mysteries and immensities pondered in our most solitary moments . Mostly, it conjures those longings and desires which lie hidden in our deepest dreams.

What does the colour blue mean to you?

Night Flights In Blue, a 13″x14″ monoprint, is offered this week for $300, unframed. You can contact me at for further info or to purchase.
