My mother-in-law bought me two tubes of blue paint and a canvas for Christmas. I was given orders to only use those two shades of blue and nothing else. I was yearning for a red or magenta but I relented and followed the rules. It was a great challenge!

This painting was accepted into the Frank Gallery juried exhibition entitled Blue. Exhibition continues until March 3, 201. It's a great show! You should see it even if you don't like this one.
