Illustration Friday: The Blues

I got the "Too Many Blues to Choose" Blues...

Since this week's Illustration Friday topic was "The Blues", I thought I would illustrate a bit of my current frustration at picking a blue paint color for the walls in our bedroom. There are just too many blues to choose from - "Nordic Ice" to "Rainforest Sky", and every conceivable shade in between! I think I have it narrowed down to about 3-5 swatches now - but that could all change once I start painting them on the wall - they always look different on the wall...

Here are some of the blue accessories I have been collecting in anticipation of having a blue bedroom - you can see the massive swatch collection too...HELP!!

And here's an illustration I did for Illustration Friday in 2005 for "Blue" - it combines some of the shades of blue that I really love along with some of my favorite things...

Finally, here's some inspiration that's sure to help you shake the blues...
