Since we cannot change reality…

The colour blue has historically been expensive and difficult to produce but these days you can just magic it up out of a can. How’s that for convenient? Anyway I think viewing James Cameron’s Avatar on the weekend seems to have had a subconscious effect on me as this study in blue just spontaneously suggested itself whilst I was waiting for the paint to dry on something else.

The picture is based on a photo of a friend and once i’d completed the image I thought it needed a little something to finish it off. Reaching for my trusty Dymo I came up with some text which I think sets it all off quite nicely. The text reads ‘Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality’. Which I reckon is quite fitting for someone who works in PR…

Bonus fact – Blue eyes actually contain no blue pigment. The colour is caused by an effect called Rayleigh scattering, which also makes the sky and sea appear blue. So there.
