SYNC members were asked, “What does the color Blue mean to you?”
"I just remembered that my mother said, 'Never paint a room blue. It’s a depressing color.'
And yet….I find myself painting….
Brilliant blues, blindingly and bewilderingly beautiful
Luscious…lapis, manganese, cerulean, cobalt, celestial, cosmic
Ultramarine, ultra-powerful—phthalo, prussian,
Elegant, ethereal, exquisite
…definitely not depressing" - Cyncie Winter
"Blue is just one of many families, tools, weapons and worlds. When the palate is reduced to only blue, the boundaries begin to expand, blue is now a visible spectrum of it's own. So I would say blue is infinitely important, and I could not live without it." - G Cody Day
"Blue is calm, hopeful, restful, and quiet energy." - Kristy Smith
"Blue connotes/suggests peace. Living near the ocean for many years, it creates a calm inner serenity and clarity." - Brenda LaBier
"Blue gives me the feeling of ice cold water and the beautiful clear Colorado sky." - Helene Strebel
