"BLUE DROPS" story

"BLUE DROPS" by Linda Kinney

These flowers grow in the garden of one of my family members. Otherwise, they have no special meaning or memory. "Blue Drops" is an 8" (20.32 cm) square gallery wrapped canvas oil painting. As I look at the painting, I wonder what to write for its story, I see only blue, so I decided to make this my subject, the color blue.

Blue represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, heaven, and intelligence. The color blue has positive affects on the mind and the body. It is suggested that one should put something blue in each room of their home for this reason. According to research, blue is one of the most popular colors, especially among men. It is considered to be the color of peace and serenity. It is a cool color and has the ability to lower pulse rate and blood pressure, and also slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. People tend to be more productive in blue rooms and blue is hands down the most popular color for business websites ad brochures.

One website I read stated that people with blue color personality are looking for stability, peace and harmony. Order and system are very important in their lives. They value their friends and family and rarely venture outside their own social circle. They stick to traditions and have a strong dislike for extravagance and unpredictability.

Blue commonly is associated with justice, loyalty, and perseverance, especially when red is included. Many countries use these two colors in their flags. Law enforcement uniforms are typically blue.

It spiritually signifies the Healing Power of Our Creator. It is the most sublime subject and color which represents, the Word of G-d. The very fact that the sky and water are blue reminds us that He is present.
