Blue Skies. They can be wonderful. Don’t get me wrong, I love a rain and gray, cloudy days. But a blue sky every now and then is beautiful. Looking up and seeing a wide open, empty sky. Just endless blue. And the spectrum of blue is incredible. From the very light, almost white, blue at the horizon to the deep, rich, almost black, blue at the very top. And every shade in between. Because I’ve tried painting a sky, I have a certain respect and awe for the shades of blue in a sky. And this morning as I walked into my hall, I looked up and saw this beautiful blue sky and it made me smile.
