Blue Period

I got the overlay but if you believe it to be yours, please email me and I will give you credit. 

I had a friend recently post how the change of seasons from summer to fall often had an emotional impact on her, and she was in a "funk" over the weekend. I did this last year, never posted it because I thought it was too personal. But I am older this year, losing my self consciousness and decided to share. 

It's called "Blue Period" for the meaning of "blue" we use for sad moods, and because I used mainly blues, whites and browns.  

The name isn't very original: as I recall, a name for the piece didn't come easy and I was influenced by a print in my hall, "Blue Nude" by Picasso that I've had for years. He had a series of paintings that were he used mostly blues:

"The Blue Period of Picasso is the period between 1900 and 1904, when he painted essentially monochromatic paintings in shades of blue and blue-green, ..."

I also love his serigraph, or silkscreen, animals: 

As always, thanx for taking a peek! :)
