Visual Notes: Blue Color Mood / Sincerely Tommy

~ sincere ~ devoted ~ reserved ~ quiet~ reliable

Blue is a color of the spirit, communication and self-expression. It is is a color of Throat Chakra, also known as Visuddha. In Korea and Mexico is a color of mourning. Meaning of phrase true blue is to be loyal or faithful. Term blue blood is used to portray an aristocratic descent. To feel blue in English language means sadness and melancholy; phrase has no equivalent in other languages. Joan Didion in her book Blue Nights refers to “l’heure bleue” – time of the year approaching and following the summer solstice when the twilights turn long and blue. In Japan blue represents femininity, purity and cleanliness. Cut-outs in Henri Matisse’s Blue Nude series were made from the sheets of paper painted with blue gouache- blue color signified distance and volume to him. Blue is the favorite color of people inhabiting the planet Earth. Blue Moon is the 3rd Full Moon in an astronomical season with 4 Full Moons while literal “blue moon” is a rare sight that may occur when atmosphere is filled with dust or smoke particles of a certain size that scatter the red light, making the Moon appear blue in color.
