Bursting Blue

Reed Turchetti's avatar Reed Turchetti

It all started with my favorite color blue that you find in tropical waters and the bright blue sky. As I was doing research for this project, I discovered some things about the color blue that rang true. It not only is the color of the ocean and sky but also represents depth and stability, trust, loyalty, peace, wisdom, confidence, freedom, intelligence, faith, truth and heaven. Blue is considered to be beneficial to the mind and body and is the most common favorite color of people around the globe! The red and yellow bursts represent the pioneering spirit, love, laughter, strength, determination and passion. They represent our emotions, positivity, clarity, enlightenment, remembrance, honor and joy. So let these attributes burst out of the blue and flourish around the world! I decided to let loose with these paintings in a free flow technique to truly achieve the bursts of freedom and creative energy I was looking for. I was wearing this pair of Nikes when I painted.
